San Benito High School 2014 alumna Rachel Logue has begun her Ph.D. journey at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, having been awarded four-year funding for her project focusing on balance and movement issues in young children and elderly people with a goal of being able to help patients with Parkinson’s disease and children who have suffered traumatic brain injuries.
A top 10 graduate from the Baler class of 2014 and the daughter of former SBHS employees Jennifer and Randy Logue, Rachel was a 2018 graduate of the Honors College at San Diego State University with a degree in kinesiology and a grade point average over 3.9. She earned a master’s degree in kinesiology from the University of Michigan in May 2019 and began her research this Fall.
While working on her master’s, Rachel, who prior to SBHS attended Ladd Lane and Rancho San Justo schools, was a teacher’s assistant and also tutored athletes in the Michigan athletic department. As part of her Ph. D. pursuit, she is teaching a movement lab for undergrads as well as conducting her research.
