Tennis pros, cheerleading hopefuls and startup stars headline Peninsula Report (PODCAST)

A tennis pro returns to Stanford to finish her degree, other Stanford students start companies while still working toward their degrees, and high school cheerleaders find a unique way to raise money for nationals.

On the Peninsula Report radio show, Elizabeth Clair shared the story of Laura Granville, a 2001 Stanford tennis star who left after her sophomore year to turn pro and faced the world’s top tennis champs in tournaments like the U.S. Open. Wrist injuries plagued Granville, and she retired from the pro circuit and returned to Stanford to finish her undergraduate degree.

Jessica Parks revealed an unlikely high school fundraiser — recycling electronics — which Los Altos cheerleaders hope will help them earn enough money to travel to a national competition.

And Georgia Wells discussed the phenomenon of students starting companies while still in school at Stanford.
