The 22 recipients were: Brady Ashton, J.D. Bembry, Cole Hartman, Mike Peters, Connor Todd, Carly Hackler, Audrey May, Milly Hensley, Michaela Richardson, Sebastian Baxter, Calen Bruner, Kaid Hutchinson, Ian Leatherman, Jacob White, Ryley Burkhart, Rachel Harrison, Chloe Hassett, Ashley King, Courtney King, Vickie Nguyen, Bailey Wallace and Tess Wise.
“It’s a great honor to be recognized for the hard work that we have put in inside the classroom,” said Ashton. “We are more than just athletes and hit the books hard.
“AU has given me a lot of great opportunities as a basketball player, but has also given me just as many academically. We have great professors here that give us the tools to succeed and work really hard to push us in the right direction.”
Ashto said he is looking forward to see how his time at AU will prepare him for his future after college.
“I know when I get my degree I will be more than prepared to work in the education field,” he said.
