Tennis player Marion Gibson was chosen as the Collegiate Athlete of the Month.
Gibson says her experience at Collegiate has made her into the student and athlete she is today. “Collegiate is a school that pushes everyone to be their best and create a supportive community,” Gibson said. “It has really shaped me into a hardworking person that always puts in effort to achieve my goals.”
Gibson also said any prospective student that is interested to attending school at Collegiate should be ready to be immediately embraced into the Spartan family. “I would say that joining Collegiate feels like becoming part of a family,” Gibson said. “Everyone is so welcoming and kind to one another. It’s easy to fit right in.”
Gibson has received two awards during her time at Collegiate: the Alice Virginia Knorr Scholarship Award as a freshman and the Blue & Gold Commitment to Collegiate Award as a sophomore.
Gibson also plays the violin and piano, which has proven to be beneficial when she auditions at Collegiate.
In college, Gibson plans on majoring in business and minor in music. Her top four choice are Kansas, Kansas State, Texas A&M and Arkansas.
