Zach Steinberg ‘19
Hometown: Wildwood, Missouri
Future Plans: Play basketball and become an accountant
University of Illinois Springfield men’s basketball player Zach Steinberg says he’s learned that leadership is not about age, but how you overcome adversity. He’s faced many challenges not only on the basketball court, but at home. Now he’s living his dream of playing college basketball and pursuing a bachelor’s degree in accountancy. He’s also a member of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee, the University Bible Fellowship and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He regularly volunteers in the community visiting sick children at local hospitals and making appearances at elementary schools. Following graduation from UIS, Steinberg hopes to continue his basketball career and eventually become an accountant.
Leadership is lived at UIS. Every day.
