With great honor and pride, we are pleased to announce the new Battalion Commander, effective in the upcoming 2021-2022 school year, is Alexander Zinke!
While attending school in Massachusetts, Zinke was not satisfied with the learning environment. At the young age of 13, Zinke told his mother that he needed a change. With that in mind, they toured Hargrave, where he spoke with the 2016 Delta Staff, teachers, and admissions counselors. By the end of the tour, Zinke knew Hargrave was the perfect place to continue his education.
As a freshman, Zinke joined the varsity football and lacrosse team and found his passion for leadership. Now entering his fifth year as a Hargrave Tiger, Zinke has climbed the ranks. Zinke mentioned in a recent interview that he had his fair share of trials and tribulations. However, that has not stopped him from realizing his tremendous progress and growth. He has previously held several Staff NCO positions and currently serves as the Battalion Sergeant Major.
It is safe to say that Alexander Zinke has exhibited the hard work, dedication, and perseverance befitting a leader in the Hargrave community.
Congratulations, 2021-2022 Battalion Commander, Alexander Zinke!
