Focus. That’s the word that comes to mind when you think of Ambassador Bria Rochelle ’18. A do-everything-and-do-it-all-well powerhouse from Mobile, Alabama, Bria was the leading scorer on the Lady Hawks Volleyball Team last season. She’s also part of the Campus Ministries Tech Team, Alpha Omicron Pi women’s fraternity, the Judicial Board, the Orientation Leadership Team, and a Huntingdon Leadership Academy counselor. Her grades? Need you ask? 4.0, with a major in exercise science and a minor in Spanish: Dean’s List of High Honors every semester. Her plans? “I want to go to Georgia Tech to work on a master’s degree in orthotics and prosthetics practitioner. Eventually I want to work toward my doctorate.” That’s what we mean about “focus.” Bria’s favorite place on campus is the library (“it’s so mysterious and filled with my favorite things—books.”) Off campus, you might find her at the Fried Green Tomato Buffet or down by the Riverfront, maybe reading one of the Twilight series books and drinking a cup of hot tea even if it’s a hot day. Bria’s been known to jump out of her car at a red light and dance around it, which gives you some indication about her joyous spirit. Her three words for Huntingdon? “Challenging, dependable, inspirational.” Her favorite person on campus is dining hall staff member Benetta Carter, about whom she says, “She is such an uplifting, positive, and funny person. She could make anyone’s day.” We think the same description is true of Bria, and that’s why she is a Huntingdon Ambassador.
