Huskies' Rona Scott Selected for 2022 NCAA Division III Student Immersion Program

Rona Scott is someone you know. And not just because she's an imposing figure on the softball field, earning first team All-Little East Conference honors as the Huskies' first baseman during the 2021 season. 
 
Rona is someone you know because she's active in the Huskies' Athletic Department and beyond. You can find her working alongside of her peers as a member and officer of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and a contributing member of Huskies' SADIE (Student-Athlete Diversity, Inclusion and Equity Committee). As a student-employee, you can find her confidently working in the high-pressure role of line judge during Southern Maine volleyball contests, and in the winter, when basketball season rolls around, Rona becomes an integral part of the Athletic Communications staff serving as a game-day statistician (and occasional copy machine paper jam trouble shooter). And when the snow melts and the spring seasons heat up, you can catch Rona hitting dingers and coming up with huge defensive plays at the USM Softball stadium.

"Like many of our student-athlete leaders before her, Rona has immersed herself in the array of opportunities available to her and has chosen to take full advantage of her educational experience and has sought out ways to grow not only athletically, but professionally and personally," said Kim Turner, Associate Director of Athletics and Senior Woman Administrator.  "Rona has an engaging personality and she has used her time at USM wisely and has truly grown into a leader for her team and for the student-athlete body."  READ MORE
