Junior / Freedom Christian Academy
Zach DeLellis joined a photography class at Freedom Christian Academy through the encouragement of a friend. Mr. Tony Wooten, teacher of this photography class, asked him to shoot an upcoming basketball game. The rest is history…Zach was inspired by the energy and excitement of the game and is now looking to perfect his photography skills. He enjoys sports photography but is also getting other opportunities such as the FCA Homecoming dance. He is a “people person” and is a natural at connecting with those he’s working with. He’s two years in and excited about what the future holds. His growth plan includes pursuing greater overall knowledge in the field and obtaining quality equipment that allows him to refine his work.
Zach’s other interests include running for the FCA Cross Country team and Martial Arts. He is a second degree black belt and has been involved in Martial Arts since he was four!
Mr. Wooten has influenced Zach and other students throughout the Fayetteville area. Zach says that Mr. Wooten was the first to notice his potential and has encouraged him to keep going and growing. The NCISAA is thankful for Mr. Wooten’s advocacy and support of the Student Photography Program as well as the mentoring of students at member schools.
