Ali Patterson, a junior mathematics major, was named 2014-2015 Great Lakes Valley Conference Fall Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She was recognized for her commitment to excellence in both academics and Truman’s volleyball team. Besides achieving a 4.0 grade point average last semester, she also helped the team to its first GLVC championship last fall. Each year the league selects one student-athlete in each sport to be awarded the GLVC Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The award is based on athletic accomplishment and academic performance. Conference members nominate one student from their team each year. Nominees must have a cumulative grade point average of at least a 3.30.

John Williams’ score was performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and was nominated for an Academy Award.
