The Sparks Tribune ran a nice story on one of our donors - Dr. Harry Huneycutt - last week - click here for the link.
Dr. Huneycutt and his wife, Dr. Rita Huneycutt, have sponsored our Academic Excellence and Scholarship Banquet since its beginnings in 2006. That great event recognizes the academic achievements of Wolf Pack student-athletes as well as all of the donors who have endowed scholarships for student-athletes.
This year's banquet, held in November, recognized 119 Wolf Pack Scholars who maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0-3.49 and 76 Silver and Blue Scholars who hold a cumulative GPA of 3.5-4.0. In addition, Nevada honored the 100 student-athletes who earned Western Athletic Conference All-Academic honors during the 2010-11 academic year, student-athletes who were named scholar-athletes by coaching associations and the 50 Wolf Pack student-athletes who graduated this winter.
Speaking of scholarships, Nevada just held its third annual Blue Tie Ball on Friday night at the Peppermill. Over 450 people attended the elegant and exciting event, which raises money for student-athlete scholarships at the University of Nevada. We will have all of the photos and videos of the dances featuring Wolf Pack student-athletes up at this link in the next day or so. Definitely check them out - who knew that our student-athletes had such great moves off the field/court!
A special thanks to the Huneycutts and all of the donors who contribute to the Pack Educational Fund and support scholarships for student-athletes at the University of Nevada.
