GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - WZZM and Meijer are pleased to recognize Northview High School senior Austin Dixon as our Meijer Scholar Athlete of the Week for the week of January 21st.

The weather outside is frightful these days but Austin thinks it's delightful on the slopes of Cannonsburg Ski Area. That's where his Northview High School ski team is underway with the 2013 season. Austin is the captain of the squad, and also served as captain of the boys soccer team in the fall. All told, Austin has earned six varsity letters in his high school career.

Austin is one of the top students at NHS. He maintains a grade point average over 4.3 taking advanced placement and honors courses. He has stayed in the top four in his class throughout high school and serves as student council president.

Undecided on a course of study and possible career choice (he says he changes his mind every week), Austin tells us he is ninety percent sure he will attend the University of Michigan next fall.

WZZM and Meijer congratulate Austin Dixon for his hard work and achievements and wish him continued success!
