Emma Lee, a 2013 pole vaulter and all-around track athlete at Grand Ledge High School in Grand Ledge, Michigan is our female athlete of the day. The 5’9″ student-scholar carries a 3.9 GPA and plans to become a veterinarian. Her NSR scout is Rodney Palmer. In his scouting report, Rodney says, “Emma has the athletism, drive, and academics all in her favor. She has excellent speed and strength at an early age. As a sophmore her personal best in the vault is 10’9”ft, her goal this year is to vault 11ft 6″. Emma has the whole package as an athlete and is a well rounded person.” She tells college coaches that, “Dedication and passion have brought me far not only as a student but as an athlete as well. I am inspired to push myself to the next level. I’m a hard worker and I always do my best no matter what stands in front of me. Life on my family farm has made me a strong worker and has disciplined my mind. I continue to use the lessons my family have taught me and applied them to my life whether it be in the classroom, on the court, or in the community
Auburn, California — Becky Holliday has basked in the national spotlight several times throughout her pole vaulting career. The Penryn native got a chance to show what she could do on an international stage last week, though she couldn’t stick around to soak in the glory of the medal podium.
Holliday vaulted to a bronze medal at the Pan-American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico to add another major highlight to her resume. She cleared 4.3 meters (14 feet, 1.25 inches), well off her career best height of 4.7. Her flight back to the United States did not allow the 31-year-old to attend the medal ceremony the next day.
KANSAS CITY, Mo – KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Between his high school courses and his college courses and his auto parts business, Mike Wilson used to squeeze in a little pole vaulting at track meets.
The man’s whole life seems to be a dash.
At 27, he’s the CEO of a local up-and-coming digital advertising agency and has been picked as one of Kansas City’s youngest mentors, helping graduate students – some of them nearly twice his age -pick up some of the tricks to starting enterprises.
Some like to compare the bespectacled Wilson to young billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO.
Flattering but pretty far off the mark, he says.
“Yeah, we are about the same age; we are both entrepreneurs.”
But he joked: “He’s worth about $5 billion, and I have about $500 in my bank account.”
