Cal State Fullerton: Everyday Champions
Intercollegiate athletics is about much more than wins and losses. The physical and mental training augment the classroom experience and teach life's lessons. Intercollegiate athletic scholarships provide an opportunity for students who otherwise might not seek higher education. And numerous studies have shown that student-athletes outperform "average" students and are more likely to become community, educational and business leaders. This is the sixth in a series of Titan athletics success stories.
Everyday Champion: Jumper Laron Brown
Senior LeRon Brown had a rough childhood growing up in different foster homes, but finally settled in one in 1995 with the woman he now considers his mother. She taught him how to do his best and always go the extra mile in everything he does. It was his mother that put him in track and field in sixth grade and it was she who insisted he go to a four-year university. Now, on his way to a degree in communications, LaRon is on to bigger and better things. Click here to hear his story.
