One of the great opportunities a university president has is to share good news and to brag every now and then. And right now, I am so proud and excited for one of our students that I want to share more about her.

A few weeks ago, recent Texas Lutheran University graduate DeAnna Hernandez received a letter from the NCAA congratulating her on being selected as one of nine finalists for the 2020 NCAA Woman of the Year Award. As finalists are determined by division, DeAnna is actually one of three Top 9 finalists from the NCAA’s Division III.

Debbie Cottrell is the president of Texas Lutheran University. Her column will appear the first Sunday of each month.
