Higgins loves to swim. With a swimming scholarship to Lincoln
College, she competes regularly in the 50- and 100-yard freestyle.
When she is not in the pool, she can be found participating in 5K
road races and working out at least two days during the week. But
her regular workouts aren’t just for looks. She is tackling her
most challenging sport yet—learning to walk again.
Washington-Monroe Jumps for
parents, students and alums at Washington-Monroe Elementary School
pitched in to raise more than $1,000 for the American Heart
Association Saturday. “This is the third year for the event,”

the Department of Children and Family Services, to ensure that
quality care is provided to every child in day care.
