Zachary Carr, a student of Appalachian State from Gastonia won a free years tuition for creating the best poster in a Game-Day poster contest.
Zachary, whose parents both attended Appalachian as well, was born after being removed and replaced in his mothers body, while she was undergoing cancer treatments. Thus, he is a “miracle baby”. And by the way, the Mountaineers had just beaten Troy State on September 17th for what they are calling “The Miracle on the Mountain”. Appalachian beat #6 Texas A&M 17-14 on the road a week earlier.
