Zachary Neely is a recent graduate of Cadillac High School and is heading to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 

9&10 News has video of Zachary helping out the Cadillac Junior High School Band.
 
Zachary says MIT gave him a financial need scholarship, leaving the family little to nothing to pay in tuition and other costs.
