If you asked members of the audience what they most enjoyed about Gardner-Webb alumna Rita Gouveia’s commencement address during last December’s graduation, some would say it was her sincerity in congratulating her classmates on their accomplishments. Others might remark on her humility. The magna cum laude graduate and 2011 Big South Women’s Tennis Co-Scholar Athlete of the Year spent considerable time thanking the professors who had inspired and motivated her.
