K ristina Rodriguez graduated from Johnson High School in May of 2021 after a consistent contribution to track and field. For students entering the 2021-2022 school year, she has
a bit of advice.
“Enjoy your time in high school, and
don’t be afraid to try new things,” Rodriguez said. “Just do what makes you happy. It’s your last chance to do whatever you may want to do.”
In addition to track and field, Rodriguez enjoyed beta club, student council, and volleyball during her time at JHS. Rodriguez also achieved district wins, department awards, and leadership awards in academics and athletics.
Rodriguez began running track and field when she was in the fifth grade. Her motivations were the great feel after a run and the idea of getting better. As she reached for her goals, her family was there for her.
“My father is a big inspiration to me. He has done lots to help my family achieve our dreams and is always willing to help,” said Rodriguez. “My family is my biggest support. They always encouraged me to be the best possible student athlete.”
As a freshman at Texas Tech University, Rodriguez will focus on education instead of athletics. She has decided to make the study of business her number one priority. However, Rodriguez believes that her time spent as a student athlete will still serve her well.
“My athletic experiences showed me the more time you put into something, the greater the outcome,” Rodriguez said. “So, I push myself to that standard to become the best I can be.”
