Chelsea Mummert '11 finishes her undergrad career as a top student-athlete
Chatham University senior Chelsea Mummert, a member of the women's swimming and diving team, was named Presidents' Athletic Conference (PAC) Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) Scholar Athlete of the Month for May 2011.
Chelsea is a two-time, back-to-back PAC Champion in the 100 backstroke for the Cougars. The Central York, Pa. graduate broke two individual school records this year at the PAC meet - the 200 IM record and the 200 backstroke record. She is the first person in Chatham's history to win a PAC individual title and currently holds seven Chatham swimming team records. Chelsea has also been named to the PAC Swimming & Diving All-Conference Team.
The York, Pa. native is a psychology major and minors in biology and professional writing. She holds a 3.98 cumulative grade point average (GPA) and has been a member of the PAC Athletic Honor Roll. She is involved in several volunteer activities and has worked for The Children's Institute in 2009 and 2010 and the Ahead Program as a mentor from fall 2008 to the present. Chelsea has also worked at a nursing home, volunteered with Toys for Tots, and raised money for the Women's Center and Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh.
"I was privileged to be Chelsea's coach for the past four years, and I am incredibly proud of her accomplishments both in the classroom and in the pool," noted Mike Meyers, Chatham's swimming, diving and water polo coach. "She is an incredibly talented and inspiring individual, and I for one will truly miss her."
Chelsea, however, won't be that far...she is enrolled in Chatham's Accelerated Graduate Program and is completing her Master of Occupational Therapy. She will graduate with her master's degree in 2012.
