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.
Nicole is a junior majoring in broadcast journalism with a minor in both sociology and criminology. Her involvement on MU’s campus includes clubs such as MUTV and the National Broadcasting Society (NBS). Nicole is also the president of the Women’s Club Soccer team. She has recently come to find the criminal justice system unjust, especially when it comes to children. She hopes to continue to do research and advocate for these children. Her career aspirations include working for a television station where she can hopefully continue educating others on the work that needs to be done involving children with incarcerated parents. Outside of school she works for a daycare center where she has seen first hand the kind of trauma incarcerated parents can have on children.
