Becky Wade was named the 2012 Conference USA honoree for the NCAA Woman of the Year award. The award recognizes not only the athletics achievements of outstanding young women, but also their academic achievements, community service and leadership.
Wade received her bachelor's degree from Rice in history, psychology and sociology, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a 4.02 GPA and Phi Beta Kappa.
During her collegiate career as a member of both the cross country and track and field teams, the Dallas native earned 11 varsity letters. She received All-America honors for cross country, indoor track, and outdoor track. Wade concluded her career at Rice as the school record holder in the indoor 5000m, outdoor 5000m and outdoor 10,000m.
In addition to earning both C-USA and NCAA postgraduate scholarships, Wade also received a prestigious Watson Fellowship this spring. She will spend her Watson Fellowship year traveling to the United Kingdom, Ethiopia, Japan, New Zealand and Finland exploring the running culture of each country.
An announcement of the Top 30 honorees, ten from each NCAA division, will be made on NCAA.org in early September.
