The Counseling Program for Intercollegiate Athletes would like to recognize Kelly Faris, an academic standout, honored for her outstanding work in the classroom.
Kelly has achieved over a 3.00 for seven consecutive semesters, has been named to the Director of Athletics Honor Roll each time, and to the Dean's List for five semesters. She also has been an outstanding member of the women's 2013 National Championship team and a team captain.
"There have been some great players play at UConn," said head coach Geno Auriemma. "We have been fortunate enough to have some legends wear the Connecticut uniform, but I don't know that anybody ever represented that uniform, herself, her family any better than Kelly Faris."
She has contributed on the court, in the classroom and in the community. She exemplifies the role of a student athlete competing at the highest level academically and athletically.
