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.

Rachel Laughlin is a senior at Millersville University graduating as a double major in Chemistry with a concentration in Biochemistry, and Multidisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Science Writing. As an active and involved student, Rachel has many interests in and out of her studies. This has led her to accumulate many projects and accomplishments which she wishes to share this year at the Made in Millersville Conference.
As President of the Martial Arts Club, she hopes to bring an awareness of the club and its motivations to the University. Some goals of the club are being an active organization on campus and providing a fun alternative workout and promote a healthy lifestyle. But primarily, the motivation of the club has been to provide self-defense education to students through training in the Martial Arts.
As her graduation date approaches, Rachel’s thoughts have been consumed with the future. As her last year at Millersville, she wanted to share as much of her work and personal growth as possible with the conference and get as much exposure and experience as possible. Her immediate plans after graduation are to obtain a full-time job within the chemistry or editing fields, while preparing to return to graduate school and advance towards her career goal of becoming a science editor.
