FSC student receives National Collegiate Award
LAKELAND, Fla. (Dec. 7, 2006) — The United States Achievement Academy has named Sharon J. Elliott, a Florida Southern College junior, a United States National Collegiate Award winner in health and physical education. The academy awards the prestigious honor to fewer than ten percent of all American college students.
James Lynch, FSC athletic training professor, nominated Elliott for the award. “Sharon is an excellent well-rounded student,” said Lynch. “She is successful academically in a time-intensive major, and stays involved on campus in leadership roles with the Sports Medicine Society and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes while participating on the nationally ranked softball team. Sharon is a credit to Florida Southern College.”
Elliot’s name will appear in the United States Achievement Academy’s Official Collegiate Yearbook, published annually. The athletic training major is the daughter of Catherine E. Elliott and the late William Elliott of Cape Coral, Fla.
The Academy selects winners upon the exclusive recommendations of professors, coaches, counselors and other qualified sponsors and upon the Standards of Selection set forth by the academy. The criteria for selection include academic performance, interest and aptitude, leadership qualities, responsibility, enthusiasm, motivation to learn and improve, citizenship, attitude and cooperative spirit, and dependability.
