AUSTIN, Texas – Lexi Jacobus was named as the 2018-19 Google Cloud Division I Academic All-America® Team Member of the Year, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Recently graduating from Arkansas for a second time, Jacobus maintained a 4.00 GPA during her undergrad and grad work in biochemistry while racking up four individual NCAA Championships in the pole vault while helping the Razorbacks capture three NCAA Tea titles during her time on the Hill.
“Everyone always sees an athlete’s success on the track, court, or field, but without awards and recognitions like this, people wouldn’t see how hard we work in the classroom as well,” said Jacobus, a native of Cabot, Arkansas. “Over the last four years, I have put countless hours into studying and my classwork always striving to learn as much as I could while being given the amazing opportunity to earn a degree at the University of Arkansas debt-free.”
“Being selected for this award is so humbling,” Jacobus continued. “And I feel blessed to be recognized for the hard work I put in away from the track as well.”
