Athlete of the Month

The August recipient of our Athlete of the Month Award is Meredith Stafford from Belmont University
To see Meredith go from an undergrad to obtaining her doctorate was an amazing thing! Her work ethic and dedication to academics as a student-athlete at TSU, in my opinion, was a preview of what she could accomplish in life.  She is a shining example that hard work pays off.
