Who is your hero? Jeanne Brown. She is the head athletic trainer at P.H. She is also a science teacher; she teaches sports medicine and anatomy and physiology.

How long have you known this person? Since freshman year, when I took her sports medicine class. She said she needed someone to help her out in the training room. I became her student assistant.

What qualities do you admire about this person? She has a fantastic sense of humor. Students love her and gravitate to her. She is very understanding, but she also stands up for herself. I really look up to her. She is an amazing individual.

What is it like to be around this person? She is very funny and very laid back. She really wants you to learn, but it's not boring. She makes you want to learn.

How has this person influenced you? She has taught me about being a trainer and about sports medicine. She has also taught me the importance of responsibility, discipline and commitment. I worked for her during football season and went to practice from four to eight every afternoon. I went to eight out of ten football games. I would love to pursue it [sports medicine] in college.

What's the most important thing this person has taught you? Stand your ground and be your own person. Don't be ashamed of anything about yourself.

-- Hillary Mullet, Patrick Henry High School
