Penfield High School senior Chris Gnam is ready to take the world by storm, and his key to success is his passion for music. He was one of just two dozen students from across the state to be selected to sing in the All-State Vocal Jazz Ensemble. He was also tapped to sing in the prestigious All-Eastern Music Choir. He plays piano and participates in theater too. But he's also a champion swimmer and a top-notch academic. Next year Chris heads to the University of Buffalo to study biology. He intends to go to medical school and wants one day to be a researcher. He's destined to achieve big things, but says his anchor will always be music.
