Lasting Impact or Favorite Memory: "Agnes Scott was a great choice for me as someone who sees herself as an independent a highly motivated woman. Most days I look back and find some reason to appreciate Agnes Scott, especially my athletic career. Athletics have been a big part of my life and continue to provide me with skills that are important for a successful career. Athletics taught me to be highly organized and efficient with my time. Also, participating in a sport (basketball) that requires intense team work taught me how to successfully interact with my peers—whatever the circumstances. This has been extremely important in graduate school working in a lab with 15 people.
Looking back at my basketball and cross country careers at Agnes Scott, I have many great memories. One of my fondest memories of cross-country is the interaction between our team and runners from other schools--some of whom remain good friends to this day. One of my favorite memories of basketball is recalling all the accomplishments that our team achieved, which included rebuilding the program starting with just seven first year players and one senior and winning the first conference game in the history of Agnes Scott allowing us to be a contender for the conference championship. The teamwork and determination to overcome injuries and all the other challenges is something that I will always remember with great pride of accomplishment."
