#TeamHERO athletes encompass everything it means to be a true HERO. They are athletes on the field, scholars in the classroom, and volunteers in their community.
Jackson Picard is the older brother of Landon and we can see where Landon picked up his competitive drive. Jackson also swims for PASA and it's evident from observing him at swim meets that he is a leader and role model for the other swimmers. It was our pleasure to get to know Jackson as a competitor and a well-rounded young man.
