Scholar Athlete: Jordan High School Track & Cross Country, Devarier Robinson
Meet Devarier Robinson, captain of the track and cross county team at Jordan high school who enjoys all of the duties that come with that title.
“Leading others, making sure everybody still tries to push themselves even though they are tired and just make sure everybody is good most of the time,” says Jordan high school senior Devarier Robinson.
She hasn’t always been open to lead, but running track has helped her come out of her shell.
“I was always quiet. I did not like leading at all, because I was so independent, but I learned how to work with other people, communicate more, open up, and then just overall I burst as a butterfly this year,” says Robinson.
In her first year running cross country she was the region champ and last year she competed at state in the 800 meter race. Her accolades follow her into the classroom as well carrying a 3.8 GPA and taking two AP classes. While most high school students take those classes for college credits, Devarier finds enjoyment in them.
“I do. As hard as it is, I do love Pre-AP Calculus, even though it’s hard. I get to challenge myself, but I love math. That’s always going to be my favorite,” says Robinson.
Beyond high school track Devarier has big plans.
“To find me a good college where i’ll be happy still pursuing my running, but at the same time make sure I find a way to become the nurse I want to be,” says Robinson.
Congratulations to Devarier Robinson of Jordan high school, this week’s WLTZ scholar athelte.
