UM Swimming Selected as Scholar All-America Team
In their inaugural year, the UM swim team continues to add to a list of accomplishments that have been achieved in a relatively short amount of time. The College Swimming and Diving Coaches Association of America has bestowed Scholar All-American honors upon the University of Montevallo men’s and women’s swimming teams.
CSCAA Executive Director Greg Earhart spoke about the effort put forth by head coach Aaron Mahaney, “No team was unaffected by this spring’s pandemic but Athletic Director Mark Richard and Provost Dr. Mary Beth Armstrong can and should be proud of their team and the work of Aaron.”
Teams were selected for this honor on the basis of their spring GPAs and represent 17,982 student-athletes. Montevallo is one out of 461 schools to receive the award for the spring semester. Montevallo is one of nine teams who will be receiving the honors for the very first time.
“I am very proud of the swim teams and Coach Mahaney for all of their accomplishments during their inaugural year.” Richard said. “They have upheld our standards of excellence not only in athletics but more importantly in the classroom.”
2020-2021 Student Employment Information
Please email Mark Bolton in Human Resources if you need assistance posting a 2020-2021 student employment opportunity in your department. We hope to place a large number of Work-Study students prior to the beginning of the academic semester; these students may begin earning their awards on Aug. 1.
Remember, it is necessary for the supervisors of Work-Study employees to submit new Student Personnel Action Forms each scholastic year. Also, please notify Bolton if you have student employees who will not be able to return to their positions due to COVID-19 campus restrictions. For example, some leisure activities managed by student employees may not re-open at the beginning of the school year. Furthermore, let Bolton know if you will need additional student staff due to COVID-19 requirements. We will attempt to re-assign student workers to areas of greatest need based on the current “Culture of Safety” initiatives.
