Kelsi Poe studies for Basic Care and Prevention of Injury at her home in Jefferson City Monday, the first day of her Thanksgiving break. Poe studies an average of five hours a night to keep her grades up, partly due to her brain injury and partly due to new priorities. Although currently enrolled in only six credit hours at Columbia College, Poe competes to earn the top grades in her classes. She plans on working in the sports medicine or physical therapy fields.
