Student-Athlete Wins National Honor in Risk Management and Insurance
Many of our student-athletes are outstanding performers in the classroom. Taylor Speaks, Somerset, a member of our football team and a junior risk management and insurance major, is one of only 30 students nationwide selected for the Anita Benedetti Student Involvement Program.
Speaks, a long snapper for the Colonels and a 4.0 student, will attend the Risk Management Society's four-day annual conference this April in New Orleans. The highly competitive national award covers the cost of Speaks' registration, travel, lodging and meals. Also, Speaks will be paired with a mentor from the RIMS Student Advisory Council.
This marks the third consecutive year that an EKU student has been chosen for the program. No other student from a Kentucky college or university was selected this year.
