Deja Foster Awarded 2011 Charles T. Stoner Law Scholarship

I am a few months late on this announcement. However, it is worth posting. 1st- this article demonstrates that it is cool to take care of business in the classroom. 2nd - this article demonstrates that everyone does not have to go pro in basketball once your career is over. 3rd - this article is another demonstration that Memphis Girls Basketball players are all over the US excelling in basketball and academics.

Georgia Tech (ACC Conference) - Graduated - Guard/Small Forward Deja Foster (Wooddale)

Deja Foster of the Georgia Institute of Technology is the recipient of the 2011 Charles T. Stoner Law Scholarship Award, the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) announced today.

The $1,000 Charles T. Stoner Law Scholarship Award, named for and presented by Stoner, a former legal consultant for the WBCA, is presented annually to one female collegiate basketball player who intends to pursue a career in law.

"What a pleasure to present to Deja Foster the Charles T. Stoner Law Scholarship Award," said WBCA CEO Beth Bass. "As the NCAA says, most student-athletes will go pro in something other than sports, and we hope Deja will have a great career in law."

Foster, a 6-foot senior guard, is the Yellow Jackets' second-leading rebounder with a 6.2 rebound- per-game average. Named to the 2010 ACC All-Academic Team for work on and off the court, she is a six-time Georgia Tech Dean's List honoree and is majoring in Management.

Foster, who is from Memphis, Tenn., is an active member of Georgia Tech's Student-Athlete Advisory Board.
