Zack’s community service initiative was anchored in a relevant location: his alma mater middle school, Ecker Hill International in Park City, Utah. Zack worked for nearly three years within the school’s Physical Education Department as a teacher’s aide with the goal of using his background as a professional athlete and an Ecker Hill graduate to inspire, influence and educate the students he mentored. About his time on the Arena Roster Zack writes, “The aim of my community service project [was] to raise the standard of physical fitness and athletic participation held by local youth through regular interaction within an active classroom environment. I will know that I have succeeded when my enthusiasm for sport has been passed on to those with whom I am working.”
