Bennington Recognized for Achievements at WWU

Jada Bennington of Beloit, Wis., was recognized for her
dedication to academics and campus involvement at the Academic Convocation and
Co-Curricular Honors Banquet at William Woods University last month.

Bennington, who graduated in May, was recognized as a
Distinguished Scholar in Sports Management. The faculty of various disciplines
at William Woods have the opportunity each spring to designate one graduating
senior as a Distinguished Scholar. A minimum grade point average of 3.4 is
required, but the faculty may consider other relevant academic factors and
variables in the selection process.
 
Bennington also received a Student
Alumni Council Outstanding Senior Award. The Outstanding Student Awards are the
only awards at William Woods University bestowed on students by the nomination
and vote of other students. Nominees must demonstrate academic achievement,
campus and community involvement and leadership.
 
In her time at William Woods, Bennington was the captain of
the women’s golf team where she was named NAIA All American Athlete and NAIA
Scholar Athlete. She was an active member of the Chi Omega sorority, Omicron
Delta Kappa leadership honorary, DECA student marketing organization, and
International Justice Mission.
 
Bennington has volunteered as a junior golf instructor and at
the YMCA of Callaway County, all while remaining on the Dean’s list every year
at William Woods.
