Myra Stock, school of choice student from Petersburg, began her running career at Milan High School in her sophomore year as a varsity track mid-distance runner and hurdler. She rounded out her high school junior and senior varsity career participating on the cheer team.
In her senior year, Stock was a member of the cross country team despite suffering from a serious ACL injury she incurred during the summer, which prevented her from being able to run in races. She continued to show her dedication to the team by coming to every meet.  Stock said that a highlight of the season was, “the unending support from the team and coach Porter.”
Not only does Stock run, at age two she fell in love with dance, while taking lessons at the local dance studio, Dance Xplosion.  She knew at this time that dancing was how she wanted to spend her life. Throughout the years, she has performed multiple styles of dance  with her competition dance team. Stock’s team won several regional and national titles.
Stock’s involvement outside of sports includes robotics. She is a key asset to the Code Red Robotics business team, where she puts in hard work at every practice. Stock not only works hard in all of her extracurriculars, but she is also an excellent student in the classroom. Her favorite subjects are Spanish and English, and she said, “I love to write.”
Her hard work was recognized when she was honored on the Huron League All Academic first team for track and cheer.
Stock will be attending Siena Heights University on a sports scholarship this fall. She plans to study special education and Spanish.  Following in her mother’s footsteps, who was a SHU track runner, Stock will continue her track career at the university.
Stock, the daughter of Tina and Rich Stock, exemplifies the perfect example of a resilient, well-rounded student that has made the most of her high school experiences by dedicating lots of time and effort into her schoolwork, extracurriculars, and her sports achievements.
