Nathan Hite, a senior in the J. Mike Walker ’66 Department of Mechanical Engineering and member of the track and field team at Texas A&M University, has been named the 2018-19 Southeastern Conference H. Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

This accolade, presented by the Southeastern Conference since 1986, annually recognizes the nation’s top male and female student athletes. In addition to a $20,000 scholarship to go toward his master’s degree courtesy of AT&T, Hite will be honored at the annual conference awards dinner in Florida during the last week of May.

“This is the culmination of all the work (Nathan) has put in over the past five years,” said Chris Barttelbort, assistant athletics director for academic services, in a related KAGS press release. “His resume is impressive and his attitude and work ethic are first class. He will be an exemplary representative of the Southeastern Conference, Texas A&M University and the McWhorter scholarship in pursuit of his graduate degree and in all his future accomplishments.”
