Briarwood Academy senior Shannon Newsome is this week's recipient of the 2011-2012 WJBF News Channel 6 Scholar-Athlete of the Week Award.
Shannon is a star on four of Briarwood Academy's teams: cheerleading, basketball, track, and twirling.
Somehow, she manages to find time to stay on the honor roll.
Shannon also holds GISA records in the 100- and 300-meter hurdles…and once she's done running around in high school…she wants a job that will let her take care of others.
