Golf helped provide Matt Yelverton (’15) a course on which to pursue a college undergraduate education, and the sport’s Big South Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year plans to continue his academic pursuits in a Physician Assistant Studies program. Yelverton received the prestigious George A. Christenberry Award, which is named for a conference co-founder and annually honors the male and female student-athletes who attain the highest cumulative grade point averages (GPA) in their sports. Also a GWU Senior Scholastic Award recipient with a 4.0 career GPA at Gardner-Webb, Yelverton spent numerous hours on the golf course in middle and high school, in hopes of preparing himself to play for a college team.
