Congratulations to Michelle Lopez. The Van native signed a college scholarship today to do gymnastics in college. That's right all you parents out there, you can get a college scholarship for gymnastics. Michelle, who honed her skills at Texas East Gymnastics in Tyler signed with Central Michigan, an up-and-coming division one gymnastics school.
"It just felt like home," said Lopez. "Everyone there seemed to be pulling for my best interest and what I was going to succeed in and just seemed like everybody was wanting to help me and it felt good."
Michelle says her experience on the national level at the Junior Olympics should help her in her college career.
