FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State’s athletic department on Sunday morning will honor 104 athletes for their hard work in the classroom, alongside their chosen most influential faculty members.
The Ram Scholar-Athlete Brunch, which will be held Sunday at the Lory Student Center in the West Ballroom, recognizes student-athletes with a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher. What makes this brunch so unique is that the athletes have the opportunity to invite a faculty member that has had a significant influence on their academic experience so far at CSU.
Along with chosen faculty, endowment donors will be present with their assigned student-athletes, many of whom will be receiving special awards to recognize their outstanding work within their sport as well as the classroom.
Former student-athlete Charlie Vail will be present at the brunch to give a short speech on his time at CSU.
Also, as an annual tradition the day after the Homecoming football game, CSU again will honor the winners of its six most prestigious awards:
- Nye Trophy (outstanding male athlete): Bryce Hanstad, men's golf;
- Virginia K. Frank Award (outstanding female athlete): Kristen Hemphill, women's cross country/track & field;
- Merrill-Gheen Award (top male scholar-athlete): Ryan Friese, men's cross country/track & field (3.829 GPA, computer engineering);
- Mencimer Award (top female scholar-athlete): Nora Kennedy, swimming & diving (3.977 GPA, health & exercise science);
- "Fum" McGraw Award (leadership, service to others, pride): Klint Kubiak, football;
- Keli McGregor Award (integrity, class): Tim Walter, football
