Jerome Meyinsse wins $5,000 post-graduate scholarship
Less than 24 hours after scoring a career-high 21 points, Virginia senior forward Jerome Meyinsse was one of 40 ACC athletes awarded the Weaver-James-Corrigan Award, which provides a $5,000 post-graduate scholarship.
Meyinsse has been one of the top players for the struggling Cavaliers, finally receiving playing time as a senior while also serving as a captain. In addition, Meyinsse served as both vice-president and president of Virginia’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, is on the leadership council of Student-Athlete Mentors program and is a member of the Athletes Committed to Community Education.
He's an economics major who plans to receive a Master's degree in the same subject at U-Va. Meyinsse was the only basketball player on the list. Virginia swimmers Jenna Harris and Mei Christensen were also awarded the scholarships. Golfer Whitney Neuhauser was honored, although she plans to go professional.
Check Cavaliers Journal on Tuesday for more on Meyinsse's on-the-court influence.
