    Words of wisdom:
    Surround yourself with people who are supportive and encouraging. Always go the extra mile, do the extra credit assignment, the bonus quiz, and the voluntary work, it is worth it. Remember, hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard (Coach Tim Notke).

    Dr. Dawn Chamberlin said, "Being shorthanded with my coaching staff this season I asked Grace if she would be interested in being our Team Academic Advisor. She has done an outstanding job of monitoring study hall hours, helping our first-year student-athletes with any academic issues as well as working through class scheduling, tutoring and SI’s. She has done an outstanding job and no player has missed their hours and are all in great academic standing. Grace is also a 4.0 student! Additionally, she took the lead on our Corners for Cancer game and with her sports marketing class she helped us raise over $4000.00 for SU’s Relay for Life. She has placed 1^st^, 2^nd^ and 3^rd^ in the 3 business marketing competitions. Not to mention committing at least 3 hours per day to field hockey. She is well deserving of this honor."
