Hailey Van Lith

Graduate Student, MBA Program, Women’s Basketball

Reason for nomination: Hailey is a new graduate transfer student-athlete who enrolled in the LSU one-year MBA program. Not only does Hailey bring a level excellence, leadership and competitiveness to the women’s basketball program athletically, but she also brings that same level of excellence, leadership, and competitiveness to the classroom.  The reason I am nominating Hailey for student-athlete of the month is because even though she was unable to attend the MBA program orientation prior to starting this fall due to competing for USA, she did an amazing job in her first MBA course during B session which is one of the most difficult courses in the program. There is no doubt that as the season starts Hailey will be a force to reckon with on the court and in the classroom.

Mike Williams

Freshman, Undecided, Men’s Basketball

Reason for nomination: Mike has really been a joy to work with this semester. His work ethic, determination to grow, and great attitude are just a few of the characteristics that are contributing to his success as a student-athlete. Mike’s great habits have put him on the path toward academic success. We are very excited to see all that he will accomplish here at LSU.
