Heartiest congratulations to Shanice Love, former Lady Eagles track and field captain, on completing her studies at Florida State University with a Master’s Degree in Accounting.
Added to her records in accounting, this is indeed a fitting coda to a dazzling career as a student-athlete, studded with many honors. Among Shanice’s many plaudits during her 5-year tenure at Florida State University was her recognition as an Academic All America for her sterling performance in the classroom.
Shanice also simultaneously earned All-American honors for her prowess as an athlete, marking her as the consummate student-athlete. She is one of the gleaming success stories of the DASH Athletics Initiative, the group of former Excelsior track & field athletes spearheading the revitalization of the sport at Excelsior High School.
As she mulls several job offers and transitions to the job market, on behalf of the entire Excelsior fraternity, we want to applaud Shanice for keeping the Excelsior flag soaring, yet higher!
