PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WMBB)– This Week’s Scholar Athlete of the Week sponsored by Perry & Young is Rutherford’s Cheyenne Gibson.
As the captain of the Rutherford Volleyball team, Gibson is a leader.

“I just feel like it give me time to be able to do something like on my free time be able to go to meetings and be able to lead other students,” said Gibson.
Despite all of her commitments, she has a 4.5 weighted and 3.8 unweighted GPA.
“It’s really challenging but volleyball is one of the things that helps me like escape from that,” said Gibson.
She wants to pursue athletic training and hopes to attend Florida State University if she doesn’t receive a volleyball scholarship anywhere.
