Brooke Hensley, a Bethel-Tate High School senior, has signed a college letter-of-intent to attend Mt. Vernon Nazarene University, Mt. Vernon, Ohio, to continue her career as a student and as an athlete.
Nursing will be her collegiate major course of study and she will also continue her stellar career on the softball diamond.
“I love the school at Mount Vernon and their nursing program,” she said of her future institute of higher education. “Once I was offered the opportunity to study nursing and play softball I really wanted to go there.”
For the Fighting Tigers of BTHS, she earned five letters in softball and volleyball and also competed in soccer. She was a Southern Buckeye Conference American Division all-star on the diamond and in the gymnasium.
In addition to her athletic activities she found the time to be a member of the Family, Community and Career Leaders of America, the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the high school student government.
“My parents (Mike and Cindy White) are all the time making great efforts for me and they have made me who I am today,” said a very grateful daughter. “My youth pastor (Kurt Charlton at the Bethel Church of Christ) is always there for me. . . John Weber is my high school softball coach and I want to thank him for all the time he’s put in with all of us and for his confidence in all of us. . . my friends and family are always there for me, too.”
