Zachary Hunter

Zachary Hunter

Major: Philosophy

Zachery Hunter has been around baseball since he was barely 2 feet tall. A chance to play collegiate baseball brought him to Heidelberg. Finding a place that would help him become the best citizen possible kept him here. Zach enrolled into the Honors Program at HU while majoring in Philosophy. Baseball and the Honors Program motivated Zach and provided unique opportunities and help serve others. For his Honors service learning project, he tutored students in K-12 at Tiffin’s Bridges Community Academy. In the community, Zach and his teammates helped with Y-Wives events and a canned food drive on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, among other service projects. He served as a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for a year.

“I’ve been really motivated and driven,” he said. “I wanted to give every effort in every aspect, and just being committed to academics and baseball to the greatest degree that I could.”
