In her own words...
Memphis was a really good experience. I met so many people from all over the world, even someone from Mexico. I went to classes and learned about being a college athlete. It was also nice to watch so many skilled players compete, especially the USA team.
I didn’t have time to go inside, but viewed the National Civil Rights Museum at the Lorraine Hotel where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. I want to study Civil Law in College so this was very interesting to me. - London Creach, OCHS'25
