GOSHEN, Ind. – Natalie Graber, a senior elementary education major from Stryker, OH, was named Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athlete for winter and spring sports at Goshen College. Natalie is a member of the Goshen College Women’s Track and Field team.
The NAIA recognized more than 20 Maple Leafs as Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athletes. In the previous four seasons, Goshen has racked up 195 scholar-athletes: this year’s total represents one out of every 5 athletes on a Maple Leaf varsity roster. The Goshen College athletic department’s mission is to develop student-athletes athletically, academically and as individuals of character in the community.
Nominated by each institution’s head coach, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and have achieved junior academic status to qualify.
