By Travis Sloat
Chelsea High School senior Miranda Rue has an exceptional level of focus whether she’s on the court, track, alley or the floors of Northeast Tech.
“I’m in cross country, basketball and track,” Rue said. “I also bowl on the side. At Northeast Tech, I’m in the Health Careers program. I’m currently getting my CNA, which is helping me get a small picture of what I’ll be doing as an RN.”
The career path has already been set for Rue, and she said after high school she plans to go to the University of Oklahoma and become a registered nurse. She wants to work in Tulsa or Oklahoma City after she is certified. As for now, Rue is busy involving herself in all the athletic teams she can for the Dragons.
“I am a lead-by-example kind of girl,” she said. “Almost all of my coaches have told me I’ve very coachable. If I see a teammate struggling with something, I help them out anyway I can. For example, I’ll show them what they are doing wrong and help them fix it.”
Rue’s dedication to her many crafts can be displayed by a few of the awards she’s accumulated over the years. A state appearance in track her freshman year, another in cross country her sophomore year, and a couple of district wins in basketball.
She also won rookie of the year her freshman year in cross country.
In her free time, Rue said she enjoys hanging out with her sister and playing video games. She also likes to play with her little cousins.
