There's an old adage that says that people make choices that â€ś ... are the lesser of two evils.â€ť Talihina High School senior high and long jumper Keisha Brown had to make such a decision.
Brown's choice was to one of two things, either attend graduation ceremonies and miss out on last Saturday's Class 2A Regional Meet in Luther with a shot at making state in either or both event, or miss graduation and jump at the regional meet. Brown did the latter, and made state in both events â€” being the regional champion in the high jump and the regional runner-up in the long jump.
â€śI was totally excited when I qualified for state in both events, but yet I also had a small sad feeling because I had to make a big decision between the regional track meet and my senior graduation, â€ś Brown said. â€śIn my opinion, I made the more memorable choice.â€ť
