Press Release PSU:

Pittsburg State University senior women's basketball player Lizzy Jeronimus and senior football player Keeston Terry have been nominated for the 2014-15 Ken B. Jones Award for the MIAA's Female & Male Student-Athletes of the Year.

 
The award, in its 22nd year, is named in honor of Ken B. Jones, who served as the MIAA's first full-time commissioner for 16 years. Jones retired in 1997 and passed away in May 2004. He was inducted into the MIAA Hall of fame in the inaugural Class of 2010.
 
Jeronimus and Terry are among 18 nominees for the 2014-15 awards. That group will be paired down to three male and three female finalists who will be invited to Kansas City for the MIAA Award Ceremony June 3. The winners will be announced that night at the Kansas City Public Library-Plaza Branch.
 
Each nominee is judged in four areas: 2014-15 athletic accomplishments; career academic accomplishments; 2014-15 campus/community service; and career athletic and service achievements.
 
Jeronimus, a Lenexa, Kan., native, captured the 2013-14 Ken B. Jones Award following her junior season. She finished her career as a four-time NCAA Division II All-American on the court while setting the Pitt State career scoring record (2226 pts). Jeronimus also earned Capital One Academic All-America® selection her senior season; and she graduated from PSU earlier this month with a 3.785 grade-point average in management.
 
Terry, a native of Blue Springs, Mo., earned third-team All-America honors as a senior on Pitt State's 2014 MIAA co-championship squad and he garnered Capital One Academic All-District accolades in each of his final two seasons. Terry, currently pursuing a career in the National Football League, has a 3.680 grade-point average as a physical education major.
 
To be nominated, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.25 cumulative grade-point average as of Feb. 1, and must have completed at least their junior season of eligibility in the 2014-15 academic year.
