Overcoming Adversities

Adversities may seem to knock us down but they should never define our character.

Zachary Shellar is a UTA student that found a passion for music at very young age. A talented euphonium player that has participated with the UTA’s marching band and the renowned  Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps. Zachary, however, was born with Poland Syndrome, a condition that affects the development of muscle on the chest, arm, and webbing of the fingers.

Despite his condition, Zachary believed in the talent he possesses and with the help of his beloved family he has been able to overcome adversity.
