Classroom Champion - Mykayla Marek - December 14, 2017

BRYAN, Texas -- Classroom Champions, sponsored by American Momentum Bank.

News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest Classroom Champion, Mykayla Marek. The Rudder High School Senior has a 4.8 GPA, and is currently ranked third in her class.

Lisa Perkins – Teacher
“Mykayla's great! Mykayla is what I would classify as a stealth student. You may notice that she's in the room until she has done amazing things. And you're completely caught off guard by her brilliance. Her work ethic is something I've never seen before. It is an everyday all day every moment in; her head is in the game. She plans, she schedules, she color codes, she post it notes, it's an immaculate thing to witness.”

Darryl Bruffett
Mykayla is a three-year letter winner for the Lady Ranger gymnastic team. Last season, Mykayla was a State Qualifier in the Floor Routine, and she's eyeing to get back to State this season. Outside of sports, Mykayla is the President of the Rudder High Photography Club, a member of the National Honor Society and Girl Scouts of the USA. And in her spare time, she likes to volunteer her time at her church and teach gymnastics to kids.”

Cali Currie - Coach
“Her teammates really respect her. She comes in and works really hard and so they want to follow that example. And she's always willing to help out her younger classmates on the team. She's not only striving to return to state; but this year to get her there also. So, she really is a team player and looking to promote her team more than herself.”

Mykayla Marek - Student
“Being a leader here in the gym really comes easily to me. Because I' someone who, if I need to get something done I'm going to get it done. And so the other girls see that, and from that they just see what's expected of them.”

After High School, Mykayla plans on attending Texas A&M University, and she will major in Environmental Design Architectural Studies.

Congratulations to Mykayla Marek of Rudder High School. This week’s News 3 Sports Classroom Champion!
