|Randolph President Bradley W. Bateman presents Colton Hunt ’13|
with the NCAA Division III Academic All America Award
An economics major, Hunt was a standout guard on the men’s basketball team, becoming the first male student-athlete at Randolph to reach 1,000 career points. He graduated at the top of his class with a 3.95 GPA.
Don Giles, a member of the College’s Board of Trustees, and his wife Francis Giles ’65, a trustee emerita, recently donated a replica of Hunt’s Jostens Trophy to the College. It is displayed, alongside a replica of his All-America award, outside the basketball court in a trophy case donated by Jamerson-Lewis Construction.
“This wonderful gift will provide us the opportunity to showcase not only the amazing individual accomplishments of Colton, but also the ideals and characteristics we value in Division III athletics and Randolph College,” said Tina Hill, director of athletics. “This is just the start of our vision to celebrate the success of many of our student-athletes. Displaying this award in the main lobby area will be a daily reminder for everyone, to stay focused, work hard and be the best we can be.”
