Project Summary: The NCAA grants this award to student-athletes pursuing graduate level education.
How did W&L prepare you for this opportunity? I had great role models in my older teammates, who were committed athletes and students.
Why did you apply for this opportunity?
Post-graduation Plans: I will be attending medical school next year. I have not yet decided where I will be, but I have a few options I am excited about.
How will this opportunity help you achieve your goals? This award will help cover my first year’s tuition. While medical school will still be expensive, I am grateful for the recognition and the support provided by this award.
I have been a member of the Cross Country team as well as the Indoor and Outdoor Track and Field Teams for all four years at W&L.
