She works within the leadership department of Student Services, coordinating many of the leadership programs offered throughout the year. Alexis is a dependable and creative student leader with an unwavering determination to succeed.
Male Student Athlete of the Month – Keenan Gumbs
Keenan is a senior on the Men’s Basketball team and was named SCAC Player of the Week on January 22. He has led the men’s team to a league leading 7-1 conference record. Keenan averages 22 points and 7 rebounds per game, and boasts an overall shooting percentage of 48% and 80% from the free throw line.
Female Student Athlete of the Month – Jordyn Villa
Jordyn is a senior on the Women’s Basketball team and leads her team in scoring, rebounding and assists. She is the only Mountaineer on the women’s team to average double figures on the season, at 16 points per game in SCAC play. Jordyn currently sits in 8th place overall in scoring for the conference and is looking to climb further up that list as we move through the most exciting month in college basketball.
Student Services Staff Member of the Month – Bill Raleigh
Bill joined our staff this past summer and has hit the ground running, having an immediate impact on game day operations and elevating the Athletics Department’s profile on campus. Bill was also named one of this year’s Guardians of the Game by The National Association of Basketball Coaches. The award recognizes coaches and administrators for their support in the game of basketball and emphasizes four core values: advocacy, education, leadership and service. Bill has carried with him these values to his role here at Schreiner and we are very fortunate to have him on our team.
Each month, the Dean of Students’ office recognizes students and staff for their excellence in leadership through campus involvement, leadership activities, and/or through volunteer and community service programs. These awards are selected by a committee and sponsored by Student Services.
