RICHMOND, Ind. – Mallory Livingston is an all-America performer on the volleyball court and in the classroom.

Livingston (Union City, Ohio/Mississinawa Valley High School), who recently completed her junior year in the Indiana University East volleyball program, is the school’s Female Academic Athlete of the Year for the 2014-15 school year.

The Academic Athlete of the Year award goes to the IU East student-athlete with the highest cumulative GPA. The honoree must be a junior or senior and must have been enrolled at IU East for at least three semesters.

Livingston was a third-team Tachikara-NAIA volleyball all-American this past year on the volleyball court while maintaining her flawless record in the classroom. Livingston has been a Chancellor’s List honoree – for IU East students who complete a semester with a grade point average of 4.0 – after all six of her semesters at IU East.

“Academics-wise, I have always been a perfectionist in the classroom,” Livingston said. “I really just do my best to try not to wait until the last minute on all my work so I don’t get stressed out trying to catch up. I also think that I’ve had a good relationship with all my professors to where I always feel comfortable asking questions whenever I need help. This has helped me to stay up on my grades.” Livingston was a Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athlete and academic all-conference honoree in 2014-15. She is a psychology major.
