However, it was some brotherly horseplay several years ago that would help Zach decide what he wanted to be. After wrestling around with his brother, Zach had his front teeth nearly knocked out. A trip to the dentist was all it took, Zach found his future career.He plans to attend UNR next fall then transfer to UNLV to attend dental school. He maintains a 4.53 grade-point average.The Carson High School community is proud of the accomplishments Zach has achieved, and we wish him the best of success.• Angila Golik is a government and sociology teacher at CHS and a member of Senator Pride.
