Adam Kraemer exemplifies the word achievement. Kraemer is a senior at Newsome High School and has a busy schedule juggling his academics, sports and family.

Kraemer currently holds a 5.4 weighted GPA and is involved in many academic clubs at school including Mu Alpha Theta, Latin Honor Society, National Honor Society, Rho Kappa, Latin Club, Future Business Leaders of America and Relay for Life club.

An avid sports lover, Kraemer has played a variety of athletics. “I played on the Newsome basketball team for the past four years,” said Kraemer. “I love all sports – watching and playing. I played football and basketball growing up and stuck with basketball through high school, and also played competitively.”

All in all, Kraemer has been successful in every aspect of his life. He credits a lot of this to his family. Kraemer was born and raised in Florida. His mom works in human resources and his dad works in sales.  Kraemer is the middle child of the family, with an older sister and a younger brother. “My parents are great role models and are always there for me,” said Kraemer. “I have also looked up to and respected many teachers and coaches”

According to his mother, Robin Kraemer, “Adam is a very well rounded student and person. He has reached high academic honors while staying actively involved in what Newsome and high school life has to offer. What separates Adam is his personality, manners and who he is as a person.”

With all his success, Adam hopes to attend the University of Florida to study business. “I would like to have good news in February and become a Gator,” said Kraemer.
