Junior Tiana Woolridge, an two-time All-Ivy standout on the women's volleyball team, is one of nine students who was named winner of the 2014 Spirit of Princeton Award, which honors undergraduates at Princeton University for their positive contributions to campus life.
The award recognizes students who have demonstrated a strong commitment to the undergraduate experience through dedicated efforts with student organizations, athletics, community service, religious life, residential life and the arts.
This year's winners were selected from a group of more than 100 nominations and will be honored with a book prize at a dinner on May 7. The University's Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students sponsors the award, which has been given annually since 1995.
Woolridge is a junior from Sherman Oaks, California, majoring in the Woodrow Wilson School. Besides starting for the volleyball team, she was also a representative for the Varsity Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Woolridge is a member of the Student Health Advisory Board, vice president of the Minority Association of Premedical Students, and founder and chair of the Student-Athlete Service Council. She was selected as a student-athlete representative for the Athletic Director Search Advisory Committee.
Woolridge, a second-team All-Ivy League honoree following the 2012 season, led the league with a .357 hitting percentage in Ivy matches during the 2013 season, when she earned All-Ivy Honorable Mention. She had one of her biggest matches at the end of the season, recording 10 kills and six blocks while hitting .500 in a 3-0 win over Brown.
