SETH MARTIN NAMED UNSUNG GENERAL OF THE YEAR
LEXINGTON, Va. -- Senior men's tennis player Seth Martin
(Bryn Mawr, Pa./Radnor) was presented the John W. Elrod Unsung General
of the Year award at the Celebrating Student Success Gala Awards Assembly
held on Wednesday evening at Lee Chapel.
The Celebrating Student Success Initiative, sponsored by
the Dean of Students Office at W&L, recognizes those students
who contribute to University life, in ways often not seen to the larger
community and who bring both depth and breadth to the University community.
In addition to being a member of the men's tennis program,
Martin serves as president to the Beta Theta Pi fraternity and has served
as the social chair and president of Hillel, actively recruiting Jewish
students and adding to the University's diversity. Martin also serves
on the Multicultural Advisory Board and has formerly served on the Career
Services Advisory Board.
A member of ODK and Phi Beta Kappa, Martin has also served
as a tutor at the Natural Bridge Juvenile Learning Center, and presently
volunteers at the Stonewall Jackson Hospital Birthing Center.
A three-year letterwinner for the men's tennis program,
Martin has posted a 16-2 career record in singles and a 13-2 career mark
in doubles. He is 4-0 this year in singles and 2-0 in doubles. Martin
serves as the tennis team's Student-Athlete Mentor (SAM) and is a member
of the SAMS Council.
