Marissa is an outstanding athlete and a great asset to the varsity cheer squad. She has been a member of the squad since her sophomore year and has made a positive impact on so many of the other girls. She serves as a leader and role model to everyone on the team, yet always strives to continue to improve herself. Marissa has represented the team in the past two state competitions, competing in the All-Girl Stunt category and has helped the team plaace in the top five both years. Her teammates named her as the winner of the "Pursuing Victory with Honor" award because she is not only helpful and friendly with everyone, but she is extremely humble. She never seeks attention for what she does, but instead, focuses on others accomplishments. Marissa is constantly going out of her way to help others and encourage them to be the best they can be.
Marissa has maintained close to a 4.0 GPA all while participating in three varsity sports, leading the school as Student Body President, serving as a member of several clubs and National organizations, and most of all her dedication to serving others in a Christ like manner. Marissa empitomizes what a student athlete is: dedicated in the classroom and in her sport, determined to improve in al facets of her life, and impactful to all those that she comes in contact wtih.
Marissa plans to attend the University of Northern Colorado to pursue a degree in athletic training.
