From there, I followed the footnotes to the scholarly literature and the rest is history, as they say.”

Zachary is a student member of the RC chapter at Texas A&M University. He was recently recognized with our Legatus Christi designation for his outstanding application of apologetics. Chapter Director Glenn Smith explains why he chose Zachary as a Legatus Christi recipient:
