Senior all smiles afer juco signing
Amber Sanborn hopes to one day be keeping patients' teeth in order.
As she pursues an education to be an orthodontist, she plans to continue her track career at Johnson County Community College. Sanborn signed a national letter of intent last week with the Overland Park school to compete in track.
Sanborn originally planned to enroll at University of Missouri-Kansas City, but when the shot at extending her track career, came up she jumped at the chance. When she's done at JCCC, she said she plans to enroll at UMKC, which is known for its dentistry program.
"I thought it would be a smarter route," Sanborn said about taking the athletics scholarship.
At THS, Sanborn competes in long jump, triple jump and the 4x100 relay team. Now, she has the chance to continue her career past the high school ranks.
"I didn't think this opportunity would arise," Sanborn said.
