Commissioner’s Award at NMU


It was announced this past week that one decorated student-athlete has earned a prestigious award for outstanding efforts in both sports and in the classroom.

Junior Shayla Huebner became the sixth athlete in school history to earn the GLIAC Commissioner’s Award and the third Wildcat this school year to achieve this honor. She joins her teammate, senior Kameron Burmeister and senior Madison Whitehead from the women’s volleyball team.

The Commissioner’s Award is an award that goes out to six student-athletes every semester in the conference that have excelled throughout their collegiate-athletic and academic careers, based on a 4.0 GPA scale.

“When I first heard about the award, I was very honored and humbled,” Huebner said. “Just the fact that I was recognized means a lot to me and for the work I put in class and during practice.”

Along with numerous honors from both the school and conference, Huebner has been named to the GLIAC All-Academic Excellence Team in all five seasons she has been eligible in either cross country or track and field.

“I do work hard in my sport. I also do know that there are other athletes that work hard and do well in school,” Huebner added.

Raised in Marquette and majoring in sports science, Huebner currently has a 4.0 GPA recorded after this last fall semester. She’s currently undecided on what she wants to do after attending NMU. She expects to graduate next winter and return next season to finish up her track career while leading her to future records.
