Catholic Memorial High School senior is overcoming his own disability while working to save the lives of other children through his fundraising efforts.
Andy Stasik’s dreams of owning a golf course go beyond the love of the game. For Andy, golf’s been his one and only shot at being a high school athlete. “It is a game that you can play all your life,” Andy said. “With my medical problems, I have been actually able to play golf, unlike other sports.

Andy will receive his diploma at Catholic Memorial High School on Sunday…
