Four Yellow Jackets Named ACC Postgraduate Scholars – Athletics — Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech student-athletes McKenzie Campbell (swimming and diving), Connor Howe (golf), Emma Kauf (softball) and Dylan Leonard (football) have been named 2023 Atlantic Coast Conference Weaver-James-Corrigan-Swofford Postgraduate Scholarship Award recipients, the ACC office announced on Friday.

The ACC’s postgraduate scholarship award recipients are selected for having performed with distinction both in the classroom and in their respective sport, while demonstrating exemplary conduct in the community. Campbell, Kauf and Leonard will all receive $6,000 Weaver-James-Corrigan-Swofford Scholarships towards their postgraduate education following the conclusion of their respective collegiate playing careers. Howe is one of 11 honorary recipients who plan to pursue professional careers in their chosen sports rather than enter postgraduate studies.
