Like a boss

One of Amherst’s own 2011 graduates and top swimmers, Kendra Stern, was just announced as a recipient of the prestigious NCAA Today’s Top VIII Award, recognizing excellence in academics, athletics and community service. It’s given out across all three divisions, and has only been awarded to one Amherst student in the past (Carter Hamill ’05).

Stern swam her way into qualifying for the 2012 Olympic Trials in three events earlier this year, as well as earning numerous awards for her contributions to the sport. She’s one to keep your eye out for.
