PANAMA CITY, Fla.- This week’s Scholar Athlete of the Week sponsored by Perrry & Young is Bay High’s Denise White.
She started running track once she was elidglible to in the 3rd grade.
White has been to the state track championships for all four years of her high school career.

It was when she was disqualified from a race at the 2018 state track meet.
““It grew on me it makes me want to fight more it makes me want to do better,” said White.

“she can go to the next level and be great she’s fast enough to do it and also she excels in the classroom,” said Hill.
