Senior Salena Jaquay wants to work in education after college, which led her to sign a letter of intent to play Division II softball at California University of Pennsylvania.
“I love the coaches and the softball program at Cal U, but I am also going to pursue an education in early childhood education,” Jaquay said.
Jaquay’s partial scholarship pays for most of her schooling, but she still has to make up a small portion of the rest.
The process of applying to colleges and looking for a scholarship was stressful for Jaquay, but she said that having it all figured out is a huge relief.
“I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders since I am officially signed,” Jaquay said. “I am feeling great knowing I have a scholarship to such a great program.”
Jaquay said that she is excited to play softball, but even more excited to continue learning about her dream career path.
