IRVING, Texas - Louisiana Tech senior Jacie McClure was one of 14 student-athletes to earn the Conference USA Fall Spirit of Service Award, released by the league office on Tuesday.
The C-USA Spirit of Service Award recognizes the community service efforts of the league's student-athletes, based upon significant public service, good academic standing and participation in their elected sport.
The Spirit of Service Award will be presented three times throughout the season, with today's honorees representing Conference USA's fall sports: football, men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball and men’s and women’s cross country.
McClure was most recently voted to the 2017 CoSIDA Academic All-America Division I volleyball team, becoming just the 15th student-athlete in Tech history to earn the honor.
The senior libero joins Charlotte’s Mary Manser (women’s soccer), FIU’s Anthony Johnson (football), Florida Atlantic’s Greg Joseph (football), Marshall’s Ryan Yurachek (football), Middle Tennessee’s Bailey Mason (volleyball), North Texas’ Mikali Myers (volleyball), Old Dominion’s Josh Marriner (football), Rice’s Anna Figueroa (women’s cross country), Southern Miss’ Sarah Bell (volleyball), UAB’s Caroline Kerher (women’s soccer), UTEP’s Macey Austin (volleyball), UTSA’s Kaja Skare (women’s soccer) and WKU’s Hannah Chua (women’s soccer).
As a Kinesiology and Health Promotion major with a 4.00 GPA, McClure has made the President’s list in every quarter during her time at Tech. Earlier last month, she was also named to her third-straight Conference USA All-Academic team.
In the community, the Baton Rouge native served as a leader for LA Tech’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), while tutoring fellow student-athletes within the athletic department over the past couple years. McClure is an active member at the Bridge Church and a volunteer for their annual community Christmas.
She also volunteers at the annual Special Olympics hosted by Tech’s kinesiology department, as well as serving as a coach for volleyball summer camps at her high school. McClure serves as Tech’s SAAC social media chair and is also a member of the National Honor Society for Success and Leadership.
