A curve ball rarely rattles Anthony Piquit—on or off the field. He is able to do this with the support of his family, which is very important to him.

"No days promised… And everyday I’m being productive and living out every dream or getting closer to that dream.” This is the motto Reyanna Stowes lives by and her take on living life to its fullest. It is not surprising that Reyanna is putting this into practice as she thrives in her second year at Jackson State University in Mississippi.

Reyanna’s first year was met with the typical challenges of balancing schoolwork and extracurricular activities, as well as adjusting to being away from her family several states away. She tackled each challenge with hard work and determination. She maxed out on course units for Fall and Spring semesters, where she earned the distinction of Dean’s List honors with a 3.5 grade point average. Outside of the classroom, Reyanna excelled as a cheerleader for the football and basketball teams, an extracurricular activity that she has been passionate about throughout high school. She attended long practices and all of the team games, even the ones in Texas and Tennessee. She is quickly learning how to manage all of her commitments to ensure she does them to the best of her ability.
