My name is Brooke Williams and I am an extremely hard working student athlete at Winslow High School in Winslow, Arizona. Hardwork and dedication has afforded me the opportunity to excel at both sports and academics during my high school career. I have lettered in two varsity level sports in my four years, that being volleyball and softball. While doing so, I have been able to maintain a 4.5 high grade point average as well as participate in multiple clubs and activities. I have always strived to be part of a positive movement to make my school and surrounding community a better place for myself and other students in the Winslow Unified School District. I have helped out with the Winslow Elk’s Canned Food Drive for over six years, loving every bit of time I have spent doing it. I am proud to say that my hard work has been recognized by my school being selected as the Carl Weatherton award recipient which is the most outstanding female athlete award. This award is given to those that participate in sports but also bring a positive presence and leadership to the entire school. I have always tried to be a great role model to the younger students in my community. I truly want to leave a lasting legacy of service and leadership at Winslow High School and in my town.
I am a Senior at Winslow High School. This school year I plan to focus on keeping my grades up to maintain a well G.P.A., and take rigorous courses to help prepare me for college. I am in a Sports Medicine Internship class, which will help me learn about how to take proper care of myself as an athlete, and how to help others the same. My plan is to major in prosthetics and orthotics, and I believe that the Sports Medicine program is a great starting point for that future career.
Softball is my passion. I fell in love with the game at the age of eight, and it all started off when the high school varsity coach asked me to play on the local travel ball team. After I joined and played for them for a while, our coach was killed in a car accident. I am and forever will be grateful to her for introducing me to this amazing sport. She is one of the reasons I play softball today, and she is the reason why I fell in love with the sport. I also play volleyball, and participate in clubs and activities at my high school. Finding a college that has an undergraduate program that would lead into prosthetics and an excellent softball team that I can contribute to is my goal.
