Advice to Other Athletes: “Never be afraid to give 110% and work hard, but do so in a humble way.”

“It has been our privilege to work with Makayla these past 6 months.  Every time that she comes in the door you know that you are going to get a hello and a smile, followed by a thank you when she leaves.  It is a pleasure working with athletes like Makayla as she is truly the embodiment of what our program at PSP3 is all about; creating a fun, competitive environment where athletes set aside their talents and egos and where the only thing that defines you is your work ethic.  We’re so excited that Makayla will be furthering her volleyball career and education at Park University next fall.  I know that she will make a big impact on her team socially and on the court!”
