As the weight room gets new equipment, it also receives new faces. This semester the gym and health department has welcomed a new intern from Western Michigan University and former student at Comstock High School, Jill Ritchie. Ritchie interns with Cindy Leder, preparing lesson plans on illegal drugs, CPR and reproductive health, as well as, being a helping hand in the classroom.
Ritchie said she looks forward to teaching students the dangers of illegal drugs.
She also helps in the gym department with Mark Blaessar. Ritchie played two years of soccer at Western and thoroughly enjoys the physical aspects of the classes. She helps out with the new Women’s Fitness classes.
She is hoping to help out with some of the upcoming spring sports, such as soccer or track, and feels she could help out tremendously, even with the busy schedule of creating lesson plans and teaching.
