WHS junior aces ACT

Alex Ikezawa

WHS junior Alex Ikezawa is the fourth student from Westlake High School this year to score a perfect 36 on the ACT.

Alex is an all-state violinist and assistant concertmaster of the Contemporary Youth Orchestra in Cleveland, the only youth orchestra in the United States dedicated to the study and performance of contemporary orchestral literature. He is also vice president of the WHS orchestra and is part of the instrumental cover band “Atlas” with friends.

In addition to his musical talents, Alex is the incoming co-president of the National Honor Society and is a member of WHS Student Council.

Alex said he plans to eventually student engineering, possibly biomedical engineering, or will go into the medical field in the future.

Previous perfect ACT scores were earned by seniors Cal Craven and Kartik Dhinakaran, and sophomore Alex Lathem.
