(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte High School wrestling champion has been recognized for his achievement. Ashton Jackson is the first state wrestling champ from La Porte High School in about 30 years.
La Porte Community School Corporation Superintendent Mark Francesconi credited Jackson
for his hard work to reach the top and presented him with a certificate during this week’s school board meeting. “It’s not something that happens easily or by accident. I can’t imagine the work and toughness, mentally and physically, that you’ve gone through and that’s a true model for all of our students,” he said.
Jackson won the state title in the 106 pound weight class last month.
