Campbell Awarded Coach Wooden Citizenship Cup

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech swimming’s McKenzie Campbell has been named the recipient of the 2024 Coach Wooden Citizenship Cup Award, Athletes for a Better World announced on Friday. The prestigious award that originated in 2016 is presented to men’s and women’s student-athletes who exemplify the highest standards of character, education, leadership and commitment to positively impact our community. 

Campbell’s commitments extend beyond the pool deck as she currently represents swim and dive on the Student-Athlete Advisory Board (SAAB). The graduate student serves as the co-chair of the community outreach committee, helping organize and plan service events.
