State Senator Troy Balderson (R–Zanesville) today honored Heidi Jo McGrady, a sixth-grade student in the Logan-Hocking School System at the Ohio Statehouse.
McGrady, then a fifth-grader, led the school’s archery team to place fourth out of 30 teams in the elementary-school division during the 2014 National Archery in Schools Program (NASP) World Tournament. The competition was held in Madison, Wisconsin.
“The Logan-Hocking team did an outstanding job representing Southeast Ohio on the national stage, and Heidi has proven herself both an outstanding athlete and a great leader for her team,” said Balderson.
McGrady also placed first out of all 297 girls in the tournament.
The student addressed the chamber during the Senate’s Tuesday session after being honored with a resolution from Balderson.
