GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) WZZM and Meijer are pleased to recognize Rockford High School senior Mike Arend as our Meijer Scholar Athlete of the Week for the week of December 3rd.

A four-year varsity letterman, Mike recently helped the Ram water polo team complete a perfect 50-0 state championship season. The captain of the swim team, Mike holds school and pool records in the 400m freestyle relay.

An excellent student, Mike's GPA is 4.073 and plans to swim in college. He tells WZZM he would like to go into biomedical engineering "to work on the new technology in the field (of medicine) and be involved in the ever-changing field."

WZZM and Meijer congratulate Mike for his hard work in the pool and the classroom and wish him continued success!
