Thomas & Farris Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week: Jacob Kennedy




Senior Jacob Kennedy’s hot bat helped carry his Fike High varsity baseball team to two wins in three games of the inaugural Golden Leaf Invitational tournament last week, making him this week’s Thomas & Farris Attorneys Student-Athlete of the Week.

Jacob batted .444 (4 for 9) with a double and a triple and four RBIs as the Golden Demons defeated Corinth Holders 8-3 and Southwest Guilford 5-4 on Wednesday after losing to Hunt 12-10 in the opening round Monday.

Jacob has a 3.5 unweighted grade point average at Fike where he has a course load that includes Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and honors classes. He is the president of the Fike Chorus and is on the yearbook staff. Jacob is also the Fike student delegation leader of the YMCA Youth & Government program. Earlier this school year, he was a recipient of the Daughters of the American Revolution Good Citizen Award.

The son of Michele and Mike Kennedy of Wilson, Jacob is active at First Presbyterian Church in Wilson and is a co-moderator on New Hope Presbytery Youth Council.

He plans to attend Presbyterian College and major in religion and sing in the choir.
