VIDEO: A Tribute To The North Texas Faculty And Staff
Madison Thompson Competes For Excellence In And Out Of The Circle
In honor of University Faculty and Staff Appreciation Month, MeanGreenSports.com will be recognizing the special relationships between student-athletes and their professors. Over the next four weeks we will spotlight the personal stories of students-athletes and the teachers who inspire them.
In our final video, MeanGreenSports.com sat down with senior pitcher Madison Thompson. Thompson, a psychology major, is a student-athlete who is committed to her work in the classroom. She was one of 37 North Texas student-athletes last year to receive the Conference USA Commissioner’s Academic Medal for posting a cumulative grade-point average above 3.75. Thompson has also been a member of the North Texas President’s List and Dean’s List.
Thompson selected Dr. Amy Murrell, a professor in the department of psychology as someone who inspired her to learn.
Madison is one of four seniors on the Mean Green softball team and is the only upperclassman on the pitching staff. She has made six appearances in 10 games this season for the Mean Green.
