2021 VALEDICTORIAN AND SALUTATORIAN AFTON CENTRAL HIGH SCHOOL

Brody Oleksak, son of Jamie and Kelly Oleksak of Afton, has achieved the academic honor of Valedictorian for Afton Central School’s Class of 2021. He has maintained a seven-semester grade point average of 97.222%. 

Brody has maintained High Honor Roll throughout high school while earning many college credits through Tompkins Cortland Community College. Brody is also a three-sport athlete and has spent numerous hours volunteering for the community. He has had an impact on not only the community through his volunteering efforts, but also on the athletic community. Brody has always been a person that people and teammates can look to. 

Brody would like to thank his parents for always supporting him and being his rock for when he is in need. He would also like to thank all his coaches and teachers throughout his high school and athletic career, for molding him into the person he is today. 

After graduating from high school Brody plans on continuing his educational and athletic career next fall, majoring in biological sciences and working toward a Bachelor’s Degree at a four-year university to pursue a career in physical therapy.

 

Zachery Swislosky, son of Ronald and Yvonne Swislosky, is the Salutatorian for Afton’s Class of 2021with a seven-semester grade point average of 96.814%.

Persistent, hardworking, and motivated, Zachery Swislosky has been a positive member of his community and school. From community service to preparing for the United States Marine Corps he has always stuck with what he felt was right. 

Zachery Swislosky has maintained High Honor Roll throughout his middle and high school career. As a member of National Honor Society and as the guide of PCS Oneonta, he has set a good example of what not only a good student but also a good, self-disciplined, motivated poolee in the Delayed Entry Program for the Marine Corps looks like. Zachery Swislosky was on the Afton-Harpursville Cross Country team since 7th grade and the Bowling team since 8th grade where he was team Captain. All while doing this, he has taken college courses through Tompkins Cortland Community College and even gave up time during his summer vacation to work towards his Associates Degree.


Zachery would like to thank his supportive mother for always giving him the motivation to be the best version of himself as possible. He also owes credit to his father who always gave him life lessons to learn from and to take advantage of an opportunity to better not only his life but the lives of others around him. Zachery would also like to give thanks to not just his recruiter, Staff-Sergeant Langlois, and to all of his Marine friends, especially Chris Briggs, down on Camp Lejune, and other military bases throughout the world who have taught him to never give up and to always obtain and earn what you set your mind to. 

After graduating from Afton Central School, Zachery will be headed to Paris Island, South Carolina for a rigorous, mentally and physically demanding 13-week boot camp to earn the title of United States Marine. Once a Marine and in the fleet, Zachery will be taking more online classes to earn his Bachelor’s degree then going to Officers Candidate School to hopefully become a JAG Officer in the United States Marine Corps. After the Marine Corps, Zachery would like to open up his own law firm and become a lawyer in Criminal Law. Throughout Zachery’s endeavors he will always strive to be a role model and to be the best at everything he does.

Pantry boxes are available weekly to any family who feels they need a boost. They are picked up from the MSHS cafeteria on the Sand St. of the building 10:30-12:00 on Fridays when school is open. Clients may borrow a cart to take boxes to their car, then remember to sanitize it for the next person. This is the same time and place as "grab-and-go" lunches from the cafeteria and this time also overlaps with the community pantry pick up time as well.
