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 justin stevens
Justin Stevens is a Computer Science major with a Mathematics minor in his Junior year at Millersville University. He will be presenting his current Honors College thesis work on modelling a microsurgical suture. This work is going into an in development microsurgical simulator designed for ophthalmology surgery. He first heard about the project while in a game development course and was instantly drawn to the project since he would be using his favorite game engine, Unity, to work on a practical real world application that would assist others. After graduation, Justin plans to continue his education in a graduate program.
