Zachary Klein is a senior from Princeton, NJ. He lives with his parents and his 15-year-old brother.
Zach is involved in many extracurricular activities. He’s a member of the Broadcast Club and is involved with the broadcasts for the Notre Dame football and basketball games. He is a Notre Dame TV anchor, participates in mock trial, and is the house manager for the Spring Musical. Being the house manager for the Spring Musical prepared him for his volunteer work with McCarter Theater productions in Princeton. His time-management skills are superb, as he also works a part-time job at Target for about 15 hours a week.
Zach has a passion for community service. In his community, he volunteers with Princeton Special Sports. This work is extremely important to him as his brother has special needs and Zach wants to contribute to that community. He spends many Friday nights at Princeton Special Sports dances held at John Witherspoon Middle School in Princeton.
This past holiday season, Zach was a huge contributor to the Holiday Wishes Drive at Homefront. He helped to organize a toy drive that benefitted over 4,000 children. He worked with local churches and businesses that supply the donations which are organized and then
delivered on Christmas Eve.
Zach believes that serving the community will be a major part of his college experience. He was nominated for the Community Engaged Fellowship at Xavier University. This fellowship involves a group of students who live together and complete 10 hours of service per week. Only 40 students receive this prestigious fellowship award.
Zach plans on majoring in Journalism and Communications in college. After, he hopes to become a broadcaster or work in data analytics in the sports field. Zach will continue doing community service in his free time.
