Sloane Totta, women’s basketball, earned this year’s Great Lakes Valley Conference Postgraduate Scholarship. The GLVC Postgraduate Scholarship is awarded to two recipients each year in the amount of $2,500 each to be used in the first year of post-graduate enrollment at the institution of their choice. Totta has maintained a 4.0 GPA during her four years on campus as a communication disorders major. She made the President’s List every semester, and will soon become a four-time Academic All-GLVC honoree. She plans to pursue a master’s degree at Truman in order to become a speech-language pathologist. In order to qualify for consideration, the nominee must graduate by the end of the academic season – or by the end of the summer – of the application year, must have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.3 or better (on a 4.0 grading scale), have competed in a GLVC-sponsored sport for at least two years, and be a member of a team in the year the scholarship is awarded. Each league member may nominate one male and one female from their respective institution.
