Anterior Cruciate Ligaments
By Alexis Jenkins
Alexis Jenkins definitely is very active from the start. Sports have always been her passion; growing up, you could always catch her outside at the softball field playing with her high school, tournament team, or family. This all was until she had an almost career-ending injury occur not just once but twice. Luckily, she could continue to play two years of college softball, but she always wondered why tearing your ACL, also known as your Anterior Cruciate Ligament, was such a big deal. Now years later, she is a Senior here at Millersville studying Sports Journalism. After graduation, she plans to work her way into the ESPN world to eventually become an ESPN Broadcast Journalist.

By alyssa ames
Alyssa is a junior from Lancaster, Pennsylvania currently pursuing her Bachelor of Science in Mathematics degree with a minor is psychology. She chose to begin this project to fulfill her undergraduate thesis requirements through Millersville University’s Honor’s College. What makes Alyssa so passionate about this topic is that it brings together her three passions for education, mathematics, and psychology into one research project. Through this research, she hopes to gain better knowledge about the math education field and the role that teachers play directly on their student’s motivation. After graduation, Alyssa plans to pursue a career in teaching high school mathematics and eventually work towards a master’s degree in school counseling. The knowledge gained from this research will help her as an educator in the future as it exposes her to the classroom through observations.
