Carrollton, GA – The title of Miss Wolf is at the top of the list of prestigious awards given annually at UWG’s Westpy Awards. Winners combine athletic excellence, academic prowess, and a dedication to service on campus and in the community.
The standards for the award are high. UWG track standout Emani Collins exceeded those standards in every way as she captured the title of Miss Wolf for 2018.
A talented runner, Collins competed in both indoor and outdoor competitions for the Wolves. She ran the 200 meters, 400 meters, and was a part of the 2016 All-Gulf South Conference Team for her performance on the Wolves’ 4x400-meter relay team.
Collins was an even bigger star in the classroom. She graduated Cum Laude in December 2017, and competed this spring while beginning work toward her master’s degree in English. She is a three-time member of the Gulf South Conference Academic Honor Roll, has twice been named to the Academic All-GSC Team, and was a member of the Dean’s List for six semesters as an undergraduate.
Collins’ academic achievement landed her as a member of Alpha Lambda Delta for students in the top 10% of their class with 3.5, or higher grade point average. She received the Norwood and Ann Floyd Memorial Scholarship for successful student-athletes, is a member of the National Council of Negro Women, and presented a research paper at the 2018 Sigma Tau Delta International Convention.
A native of Ellenwood, Collins’ impressive resume made her the epitome of what the title of Miss Wolf represents at the University of West Georgia.
