NASCAR Driver and Winner!
Ben Rhodes is a 17-year-old Junior at Holy Cross High School that has an active career already outside of school. He is a race car driver in both the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. His on-track performance over the last few years has gained him plenty of national media attention, including the NASCAR selection committee, which has selected him as a member of the NASCAR Next program, an industry initiative to help spotlight NASCAR’s rising stars. Off track, Rhodes has maintained a 4.0 GPA during his high school years and recently was selected as a member of the National Honor Society. His scholastic achievements wouldn’t be possible without the JCPSeSchool program.
“Most weekends during the year I am at a race track, and sometimes I have to miss school for travel to the track or to an appearance with the fans for my sponsors. This takes me out of the classroom quite often. That is the great thing about the JCPSeSchool program. I am able to keep up on my homework while I am on the road trying to further my career in motorsports. I have pulled out my laptop and worked on homework in the race hauler when we have downtime at the track and also in the hotels and while we travel to and from the tracks.
“My motorsports career and my education are both very important, and it wouldn’t be possible to do both without the JCPSeSchool program.”
