Rebecca joined Destination: College as a 9th grader on the Mount Vernon HS Girls Basketball team. Our Team Reads and Cooney College Center volunteers/staff looked forward to working with her weekly.
After high school she took the brave step of leaving Mount Vernon, NY for Independence, KS to play for a Junior College program. Her success on the court led her closer to home at Manhattan College, playing for the Jaspers.
Majoring in Health Science, Rebecca was recently inducted into Chi Alpha Sigma: National College Athletic Honor Society.
Chi Alpha Sigma recognizes undergraduate college student-athletes who participate in a sport at the varsity intercollegiate level, achieve junior academic standing or higher after their fifth full time semester, and earn a 3.4 or higher cumulative grade point average.
