Even while pursuing a double major in nursing and business administration, Hannah Peevy of Dacula, Georgia, still manages to be a standout student-athlete in class and on UNG's mixed rifle team, and has also participated in Junior Olympic qualifiers.
"Being a part of the UNG community has been the best experience, and has given me the best environment to foster and develop my dreams," Peevy says. "I appreciate the rich traditional background of blended military and civilian values that characterize UNG. I have gained many opportunities to work closely with our community through the Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) on campus in our regular community engagement activities as well as our Make-A-Wish Initiative. I cannot thank the athletic department, my coaches and professors enough for their continuous support. They have pushed me to break boundaries and accomplish as much as I can."
Her other accomplishments thus far include:
- Making either the president's or deans' list each semester
- Participation in SAAC for three years
- Selected as Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association Scholastic All-American
- Received All-Academic Award for UNG Athletics
- Achieved Gold Level President Honor Roll for Peach Belt Conference for UNG
- Captain of UNG NCAA Mixed Rifle Team
- NCAA Division II National SAAC representative for Peach Belt Conference for three-year term
- Received Coach JP O'Connor Award for Leadership
Eventually, Peevy wants to further her education with a master's degree in either nursing education, nursing infectious disease, family nurse practitioner, or health administration.
"I chose UNG because of the community, area, and structure of excellence," Peevy says. "I had a 4.0 GPA in high school with AP classes, making me eligible to attend a variety of universities or colleges, but I only applied to UNG because I had my heart set on it. It was home, and it fits me."
