Avery Scherer JHS ’08 was ahead of her time. At age three and living in Jeffersonville, IN, a day’s drive away from the ocean, she made the career decision to become a marine biologist. Avery is now in the final two years of completing her doctorate at Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
This past spring, Avery, and her mother, Anne Scherer, returned to GCCS for the seventh year in a row to introduce elementary students to the worlds of marine biology, scuba diving, higher education, and achieving dreams.
