Smart Jocks

by David Tesitor WALSENBURG- The Huerfano Journal feels it is important to acknowledge teenagers who have displayed supremacy not only on their respective fields of play but in the classroom as well.  These students are nominated by teachers, administrators and parents who feel the student is worthy of recognition.

    This week, the Journal is pleased to present our first  scholar athlete, Cami Reynolds.  Reynolds is a senior at JMHS and has played volleyball and basketball during her four years at school.  She also enjoys playing softball in the summer.   Reynolds, a starter for the Lady Panthers, enjoys sports and wants to continue playing ball in college.  She wants to become an optometrist, and is hoping for both academic and sports scholarships.  With her current 3.5 GPA and abilities on the hardwood, she is well on her way.  Reynolds says, “I’d like to play ball, but academics are really important.”  She has already had an inquiry from the School of Mines in Rapid City, SD to play sports.  She has also applied to several other schools and is waiting to see what happens.  For now, she is content to just play basketball and finish her high school career.

    Reynolds is also involved with her school outside the gym.  She is president of the Senior Class, on the Student Council, Future Business Leaders of America, Epics, Students Against Drunk Driving and PRIDE.  She is also involved with the youth group at the Full Gospel Church on 10th Street, where her mother is pastor.  Reynolds is the daughter of Jeff and Debbie Reynolds.
