Kevin Janata (’11) may look familiar to you by now. The track and field student-athlete and history/social science education major from Howells, Neb., has appeared in our Student Pride section before.
We covered his NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship in our summer 2011 issue (“Scholar Clears Hurdles for Postgraduate Study”). The year before, we covered his Elite 88 Award for having the highest GPA at the NCAA Division III outdoor track and field championships (“Student-Athlete Honored for Elite Effort,” fall 2010).
Janata is up to his old tricks again, this time earning Academic All-America honors.
Janata’s was Nebraska Wesleyan’s 109th Academic All-America award. He was recently followed by an NAIA-leading seven more Academic All-American football players, bringing NWU’s total to 116. Nebraska Wesleyan ranks high nationally across all divisions in total Academic All-America Awards.
