Scott Sandbach recently was honored by the Gateway Citadel Salvation Army for outstanding achievement.

Scott is the home-schooled son of Charlie and Beth Sandbach of Green Park and has participated in the Salvation Army’s Home School Physical Education Program for the past five years. Besides receiving the award for outstanding achievement, the Salvation Army presented him with a $50 savings bond.

As a dual-roster baseball player, Scott is a pitcher and first baseman for the St. Louis Patriots varsity and junior varsity teams. His varsity team recently won first place in the National Home School Baseball Championship and fourth place in Division 1 of the Home School World Series in Auburndale, Fla.

Since 2002, Scott has played outdoor soccer for Rivers of Life and Lighthouse Christian Fellowship in the Catholic Youth Council League. His team has gone to several championships.

Scott, a 16-year-old sophomore, competed in Bible Quizzing through the Church of the Nazarene from 2003 to 2007.

In regional competition, he was a six-time perfect scorer. In state competition, he twice helped his team win first place.

Scott also qualified for World Quiz, which takes place every four years, and received a perfect score. After completing the quiz program, Scott returned to the program for three years and volunteered as a teacher’s assistant to help mentor first- through sixth-grade students.

He serves his community by helping elderly neighbors with lawn mowing, gutter cleaning and snow shoveling.
