They said: Yasmine has been with me since her 7th-grade year and has been someone I can depend on from day one. She’s never once had a single behavioral issue within or outside of school walls. She always strives to support others, and to find ways to help out in all situations of her life. I’m thankful to have her on the team and look forward to seeing her grow as a person, student, and athlete.
