Mendenhall Auto Center's Student of the Week

Zach Gianotti, 11, is a fifth-grader at Mendenhall River Community School. He is the son of Chris and Joan Gianotti. Zach said there are many things he likes about his school. "I like that my friends are there, and I have a great teacher," he said. "We have a great school system. I like how things work there." He was a member of the marathon club, where he ran a mile each morning. "I wake up early and usually have nothing to do, and I like to run. It's fun," he said. Zach also is involved in soccer, jump rope, art and Boy Scouts. One of his favorite subjects is math. "My dad is an engineer so it's easy for me, and sometimes it's fun," he said.
