BOISE, Idaho Senior women’s golfer Katie Street was honored as one of Boise State University’s best and brightest, Tuesday, as she was named a Top Ten Scholar by the Boise State Alumni Association.

Street, a native of Federal Way, Wash., was chosen from among the top 10-percent of Boise State’s graduating class for 2006-07. The selections are based on academic performance, recommendation from college deans and extracurricular and research activities.

“Katie is the model student-athlete,” Boise State women’s golf Head Coach Lisa Wasinger said. “She excels in all aspects of her life and leads by example. Her dedication, determination and passion for excellence have been an inspiration to all she has touched.”

The business economics major was named to the All-Western Athletic Conference team as a junior in 2006. She has served on the NCAA Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) and chaired the conference’s SAAC.

She is the recipient of the Anthony Robert Scott, Len B. and Grace Jordan and Boise State Department of Economics scholarships. She has been named Boise State’s Outstanding Graduate in Economics and received the President’s Award for Leadership Excellence from the university.

As a Top Ten Scholar, Street had the opportunity to honor a Boise State professor who was particularly influential to her success. The honored faculty nominated by Street was Dr. Chris Loucks, professor of economics.

Street will begin an internship at the National NCAA office, after which she plans to attend law school. Street’s long-term goal is a professional position in a college athletics program.
