The academic accolades continue to roll in for Ole Miss student-athletes as volleyball player Aubrey Edie was chosen to represent the University of Mississippi in the 2016-17 class of Who's Who among Students in American Universities and Colleges. The student-athlete was honored with an induction ceremony recently at the Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts.

Each year the University of Mississippi, along with various other colleges and universities, recognize those students who have made considerable contributions to their campus in a variety of areas, including scholarship, leadership and student activities.

“Aubrey is a standout student-athlete who has accomplished so much in the classroom as well as who has shown her heart for service,” senior associate athletics director for student-athlete development Derek Cowherd said. “We are so very proud that she has been recognized as part of the 2017 Who’s Who class at the University of Mississippi.”

Edie has received several academic accolades over the last several days, including being awarded a Taylor Medal, which is the highest academic accolade at the University of Mississippi and is awarded to no greater than one percent of the student body. Additionally, Edie was awarded a NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship to continue her education.
