An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award has developed into the nation’s premier tribute to college seniors. The award, which launched in 2001 with college basketball, is now in its third year for softball.
“These outstanding student-athletes deserve recognition for their all-around achievements in the classroom, in the community and on the softball field,” said Bob Gfeller, Lowe’s senior vice president of marketing. “The Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award is dedicated to honoring individuals who are making an impact on others with their talents. Lowe’s commends each of these finalists, along with their respective coaches and universities.”
The 2009 award winner will be announced and presented with the prestigious Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award trophy at the Opening Ceremonies of the NCAA Women’s College World Series on June 2nd in Oklahoma City, OK. The Lowe’s All-Senior All-America Team, based on final results of the balloting, will also be recognized.
