Jurca graduates high school with honors
In June of 2003, David Jurca graduated from Federal Way High School.
Not only did he graduate near the top of his 455 student class,
but he also won many awards for his academic excellence. The list
includes the Washington State Honors Award, the Washington State
Principals' Scholars Program Award for Academic Excellence, and
the President's Education Award for Outstanding Academic Excellence.
David always held education near
the top of his priorities, second only to his devotion to racing.
Peter, David's father, also made it a priority only allowing David
to race as long as his grades were high. At this time, David plans
on fully committing himself
to his racing career for at least a year, but plans on going to
college in the future. "At the moment, I want to focus on one
thing. High school was hard enough missing an average of one to
two days a week. I would not be able to do this in college,"
