Albion College senior Josh McGarry gained a pair of Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association awards on Wednesday. The Macomb, Mich., product was selected as the recipient of the Lawrence Green Scholar-Athlete Award in addition to being an all-MIAA first team pick in men's tennis.
McGarry, a music performance major with a pre-medicine concentration and minors in chemistry and exercise science and a mentor in the Wilson Institute for Medicine, played the No. 1 flight for Albion in singles and doubles. He finished the season with an 11-8 singles record, including 10-6 in the No. 1 flight, and a 7-12 doubles record.
Joe and Julie Serra have given a $5 million leadership gift to launch a fundraising initiative to make two dreams a reality at Albion College. The first is a newly expanded fitness and student activity facility at the site of the current Dow Recreation and Wellness Center. The second is a new or renovated competition facility for the volleyball, men's basketball and women's basketball that currently call Kresge Gymnasium home.
The College is continuing to raise funds in support of both projects. To learn more, call 517/629-0446 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
