BAYTOWN, TX - Chelsea Cheek has a busy summer ahead of her.  In addition to getting ready for her senior year at Robert E. Lee High School, she'll be a lifeguard while continuing to work a part time job as a restaurant hostess.

Balancing work and school is nothing new for Cheek though, as she's a National Honor Society member and a leader on the varsity track team.

"Out here on the track, it's my own thing," Cheek said." I have to win. I can't depend on anyone else. Same thing in the classroom, I have to do it."

In addition to running track, Cheek is on the cross country and volleyball teams, and she's also a National Honors Society member.

As for her future, Cheek would like to stay in Texas for college, citing Sam Houston State, Baylor and Lamar as possible landing sports. Her ideal career would be as an ultrasound technician.
