Zachary Stoney, senior at Princess Ann High School, is the captain of the varsity tennis team. He spent his first 10 years as a high honor role student at Norfolk Academy, where he also played on the varsity tennis; being a perfectionist in his studies, Zachary has never gotten a grade below an A in all his years of school.
Zachary has lived most of his life with severe foot pain. After burning through countless doctor's visits, shoes, orthopedics, and inserts, he still tries to overcome that pain and stay on the court. Even with his limited movement, he still manages to be a vital asset to whatever team he's a part of, contributing in taking his high school tennis team to the State's Semifinals.
Throughout his journey, Zachary realized the important role that tennis plays in his life; it particularly helped him develop social and problem-solving skills. His passion to help others see the potential benefits of the sport of tennis was a major motivation in the T.I.M.S. program being born.
Zachary helps our foundation by empathyzing with his age group so that we can plant a seed of motivation to change. His passion for volunteer work is priceless! With all of his experiences with the local community through tennis, whether it be through playing or assisting, Zachary is determined to give the gift of community to others.
