FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - The 21Alive/Parkview Sports Medicine Scholar Athlete of the Week for Sept. 4 is Carroll High School senior Josh Jovevski.

Jovevski plays on the Charger soccer team, and is also on the finance committee of the interact club.

Jovevski maintains a grade point average just over a 12.0, and he ranks third in the Carroll senior class.

He says he gets his inspiration to work hard from his 16-year-old sister, Emily, a sophomore at Carroll, who is battling cancer.

"Going through all the radiation and chemo, that's just grueling," Jovevski says. "That just makes me see how that's all part of something bigger. You go to work every day, and school, and focus on what's at hand. I just try and do everything for her out here. If she can go through that, then I can go through this pretty well."

Jovevski is undecided on college plans, but is interested in Purdue University. He plans to study pharmacy.
