Mills student athletes and Athletics Physical Education, and Recreation (APER) staff gathered in a transformed gymnasium to celebrate the athletic leadership accomplishments of our Cyclones.
Each of the awardees were given recognition for their outstanding academic achievements both as individuals and as an entire team. As a Division III school, a higher priority is placed on academic excellence, as opposed to excelling in their sport. That is not to say that these Cyclones don’t shine in their respective fields, courts, or boats as well as they do in the classroom!
Their academic achievements have subsequently driven these Cyclones to pursue leadership roles, involving themselves in various clubs ranging from the Associated Student of Mills College (ASMC) to the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC). Each of these Cyclones are on their way to pursue big and bright futures, but for now they are here with us spreading Mills College spirit everywhere.
