SEATTLE - Washington senior Kate Bradshaw, a distance runner on the UW track and field team, was honored Friday at the athletic department's Academic Convocation as the 2003 recipient of the Scott Greenwood Memorial Scholarship. The post-graduate scholarship is presented annually to an outstanding Husky athlete who excels in athletics, academics and community service.
A psychology major who will graduate this month with a 3.3 cumulative grade-point average, Bradshaw plans to apply the scholarship toward earning a master's degree in elementary education in Washington's School of Education.
The award is given in memory of former Husky tight end Scott Greenwood, and is presented by his wife, Nancy Greenwood Vehrs. A starter for Washington in the 1978 Rose Bowl, Greenwood earned the prestigious 101 Club Scholar-Athlete award his senior year and served for several years as the Vice President of Sellen Construction before succumbing to cancer in 1992. After his death, Greenwood's family and friends founded the Scott Greenwood Memorial Scholarship in his honor.
The 2000 Pac-10 10,000-meter champion, Bradshaw capped an outstanding UW career Thursday with a 25th-place finish in the event at the NCAA Track and Field Championships. The Issaquah, Wash., native made two trips to the NCAA meet in her career, and led the Husky cross-country team to four-consecutive NCAA Championships appearances. Bradshaw owns all-time top-10 UW marks in three events, including a 10,000-meter best of 33 minutes 35.51 seconds that is the third-fastest in Washington history.
