One of Anima-GECC's 2021 graduating seniors, Jackson Pekny joined Anima in 6th grade!

Jackson has demonstrated great leadership in Anima and appreciates what he has learned about working together with others as an Anima chorister. He counts the tour to Greece in 2018 among his many favorite Anima memories.

In addition to singing with Anima, participating in the Glenbard West choral program, and playing the piano, Jackson is a double bassist with the CYSO. He plans to study music and science at the College of DuPage in the fall before moving on to another school, and has received a choral music scholarship from the College of DuPage.
