Athlete named January student of the month
Clayton Whitlock recognized as a student leader.
Clayton Whitlock of Springfield, IL, was named MacMurray student leader of the month for January 2013. To be named a student leader, scholars must show academic excellence and involvement around campus.
As a MacMurray basketball player, Whitlock “has already made an impact on this campus as well as in the classroom -- 3.9 GPA -- and on the court,” said Todd Creal, head men’s basketball coach, who, along with Cori Wagner, Career Service coordinator, nominated Whitlock for the award.
“He was a 2012 Orientation Leader, serving as a role model for the incoming class, and he will be stepping up into a leadership role within that group for next year’s freshman class,” explained Wagner. “He is also willing to help out at the drop of a hat, and has volunteered to assist with various campus activities since the beginning of the school year.”
A 2011 graduate of Calvary Academy in Springfield, Whitlock is the son of Ray and Jeanne Whitlock of Springfield. He is seeking a double major in business administration and sport management.
