COLUMBUS, Ohio – Quinn Fike, a 2020 graduate from the women’s swimming and diving program, has been awarded the athletic department’s Corwin A. Fergus Memorial Award as she prepares to enroll in Ohio State’s College of Public Health.
Fergus scholars are male or female student-athletes who have excelled in athletics, achieved academically (3.00 GPA minimum), demonstrated positive qualities of character and citizenship and shown potential for success in a graduate or professional program. Established in 1967, the award is given in memory of Corwin A. Fergus, a member of the Ohio State football team (1912-14), a graduate of the Ohio State School of Law and later a successful businessman. The award reflects his strong commitment to the pursuit of academic and athletic excellence and his positive contributions to society. The $5,000 postgraduate scholarships, which each are renewable for up to three years, can be utilized for graduate study or professional programs at Ohio State.
Fike (Dublin, Ohio) graduated from Ohio State with a degree in public health and will continue her education with Ohio State’s healthcare administration and management master’s program. During her time as a Buckeye, Fike was a OSU Scholar-Athlete, an Academic Big-Ten honoree and a Big Ten Distinguished Scholar. She was also a Mortar Board national college senior honor society member and a volunteer at Nationwide Children’s Hospital infusion clinic. In the pool, Fike was a four-time women’s swimming varsity letter winner.
