TWU Doctoral Student Receives National Honor From Adapted Physical Activity Council


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University Ph.D. candidate Andrea Woodson received the national Outstanding Student Award from the Adapted Physical Activity Council of the American Alliance of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance. The award, designed to acknowledge students with excellent academic credentials and service to the community, was presented April 3 in Philadelphia, Pa.

Ms. Woodson, of Denton, is earning her Ph.D. in adapted physical education from TWU and plans to graduate in December 2003. She plays for and serves as president of the Lady Texans Wheelchair Basketball club and works as a volunteer at the Bachman Recreation Center in Dallas, coaching and teaching young children with disabilities.

Ms. Woodson aspired to play professional women’s basketball and tried out for the Women’s National Basketball Association, but a sudden disability made it impossible for her to realize that dream. She was asked to try out for the USA Wheelchair Basketball Team in 2002. However, she decided to finish her Ph.D. and plans to try out for the team after receiving her doctoral degree.
