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.

He recently graduated from Harrisburg Area Community College with highest honors and is a member of the Phi Theta Kappa honors society. He is currently in his senior year at Millersville University and has plans to pursue his master’s degree after graduating. He is an Army veteran who served with distinction for nine years before departing active service in the pursuit of higher education and a career goal of becoming a teacher. His passion for teaching and the military has led him to study the history of the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program at Millersville University in greater detail. This is a segment of a much larger research project currently underway, which he hopes to have published in the near future.
