“To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift,” by Steve Prefontaine, is Christian Apel’s favorite quote and he gave his best to receive two excellent scholarships from Centre College.
This fall, Apel, a 2014 Trimble County High School graduate, will attend Centre College to study Chemical Physics with a dual degree in Mechanical Engineering. He will also continue to run cross country and maintain his performing arts scholarship as a clarinet player.
