Toyota High School Athlete- Syracuse Academy of Science's Laurie Muok
For the definition of student-athlete, look no further than Laurie Muok from the Syracuse Academy of Science.
Laurie is a star in volleyball and track at the charter school on Syracuse's west-side on the former campus of Sacred Heart school.
It's what Muok does in the classroom that sets her apart from the rest.
Laurie is a STEM student, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
Further proof of her prowess in those fields, Laurie founded a robotics team called the "Down Unders"
Josie will head to NYU next fall, this was all on the heels of being honored as one of S.A.S' "Scholar Athletes" at the Section III Scholar Athlete Dinner on Monday.
Consider all she's accomplished with the books balanced with her work on the playing field and you have a rare athlete.
Truly, Laurie will be a name to keep tabs on as the years go by.
Congratulations to Laurie Muok, our Toyota High School Athlete of the Week!
