Seventeen Student-Athletes Inducted into Leadership Academy
COMMIT TO THE G
 

Oct. 4, 2012

ATHENS, Ga. - Seventeen student-athletes from the University of Georgia will be inducted into the Student-Athlete Leadership Academy at a ceremony on October 8 at the UGA Hotel and Conference Center. Former WSB-TV Atlanta news anchorwoman Monica Pearson will serve as the keynote speaker at the event.

In attendance at the induction ceremony will be Leadership Education and Development (L.E.A.D.) returners and inductees, head coaches, senior staff, the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and the Football Leadership Group.

This is the third year of the L.E.A.D. program after 20 student-athletes were inducted last year and 26 in 2010. The student-athletes were chosen based on academic and athletic success, leadership, campus and community service involvement and recommendations of head coaches and academic counselors.

Along with encouraging leadership development and providing resources to compete for awards and scholarships, the student-athletes will have a chance to meet with local, state and industry leaders. It is one of the program's goals to have the student-athletes visit a company where superb leadership has had a visible impact on the organization and/or surrounding community.

Additionally, these student-athletes will be provided with resources to be competitive for conference and national awards and postgraduate scholarships, such as NCAA Top VIII award, NCAA Woman of the Year award and the SEC H. Boyd McWhorter Postgraduate Scholarship. As an incentive for participating in the program, L.E.A.D. participants will have the opportunity to compete for a graduate assistantship position within the UGA Athletic Association. The 2012-13 inductees are:

Equestrian: Carly Anthony (Redmond, Wash.); Julia Hemingway (Alpharetta, Ga.)

Football: Chris Conley (Dallas, Ga.); Reuben Faloughi (Martinez, Ga.); Ty Frix (Calhoun, Ga.); Garrison Smith (Atlanta, Ga.); Kosta Vavlas (Tarpon Springs, Fla.)
