Hometown Initiative was founded by Zach Walls who was raised in Shelby County until he was six years old.  Zach's family moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan with his dad's place of work.  Zach always loved coming back to Shelbyville, so that he can be around the people that he loves. 

Zach is currently a junior at Father Gabriel Richard High School.  He is on the Varsity Tennis Team at his school and is a Co-President of his junior class. Zach also gives his time to the Special Olympics.
