Faith Holloway ’19 graduated a semester early with a perfect 4.0 GPA in Biological Sciences. Even more impressive, the defender was a four-time All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection, a two-time All-Region selection and a two-time Academic All-American. It is without a doubt that Faith was selected as the Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
Faith excelled on the field as well as in the classroom, earning the Outstanding Sophomore Leadership Award as well as conducting several research experiments at Chapman. Right now, Faith is helping to create COVID-19 testing in her position at Zymo Research. The Rocklin, Calif. native is also in charge of her own research on pre-natal testing, diagnosing disorders before babies are born. She has a full-time position offer from Zymo Research, but plans to attend the Keck Graduate Institute in the fall to earn a Master’s in Science and Business.
Despite being extremely busy in the classroom, Faith did not take a back seat on the field. She was elected captain in just her junior season by her fellow teammates, a position previously majorly held by seniors. After proving her leadership skills on the field, she was elected again to serve as team captain in her final season. Faith ended that final season by scoring the game-winning goal on her own senior night to send the women’s soccer team to the SCIAC Postseason Tournament – a moment she will forever remember as her greatest accomplishment on the field.
There is no doubt that Faith is absolutely deserving of the honor of Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year. She has shown through hard work both on the field and in the classroom that she is one of the best to ever don a Chapman University jersey.
