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.
Ashley Zerne is an Anthropology major with a minor is Sociology. She is in her senior year at Millersville University, but was introduced to the Providence Project and began her research fellowship in the spring semester of her Junior year. Exploring overlooked aspects of culture is a particular interest of hers, and this paper was a chance to examine that interest in relation to an area, and time, with much historical significance.
