Congratulations to Andrew Krause ’17, who was named the St. Louis Post-Dispatch Scholar Athlete for MICDS this spring. Scholar Athletes are students who have excelled in the classroom and on the playing field. Andrew, a National Merit Semifinalist and an Eliot Scholar at MICDS, particularly enjoyed science and math courses and competed on the field in baseball and football. He was also elected Student Council co-president; was a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, TEAMS, Science Bowl and the Math Team; and junior board vice president for Haven of Grace.

 His favorite subject at MICDS was physics, and a future goal is to “create or discover something new, such as a product or a new idea or mathematical concept.” When asked to name his role model, Andrew mentions his dad, John, for, “always pushing me to be my best, keeping me motivated and inspiring my love for math and science.”

 Andrew is currently at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, continuing his baseball career.
