2020 Kinesiology: Frankie Islas
Frankie is a kinesiology major and was selected as the Presidential Scholar of Distinction for the Kinesiology Division at Cypress College. He has always been involved in sports in one way or another, whether through playing baseball and football, or cheering on his favorite teams. He loves the outdoors and staying active.
Frankie chose to pursue an education at Cypress College to play on the college’s successful baseball team. Following his graduation this year, Frankie will be transferring to Cal State Fullerton to pursue a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology. Ultimately, he hopes to earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree and become a professional physical therapist.
“I am most passionate about making the people around me happy,” he said. “This is what mainly drove me to choose kinesiology, so one day I will become a physical therapist and be able to help people who have injuries and get them healthy as fast as possible.”
