Guest Speaker: Kayla Caldwell

Six-time National Pole Vaulting Champion and accomplished gymnast Kayla Caldwell stopped by our just keep livin program at Pinkston High School in Dallas recently for a guest speaking engagement. Kayla spoke to our students about her trials and tribulations within the track & field world. She also shared her experience from the 2016 Olympian Trials in Eugene, Oregon, where she unfortunately fell short of making the roster. She encouraged our students to always remain dedicated to the goals they have, because hard work and consistency will make them a reality. This was a very special day for many of our JKL students who are aspiring track athletes themselves. Kayla is currently coaching competitive gymnastics and is looking forward to having another shot at making the 2020 Olympic roster.
