Leaders for Life
In 2006, Dr. M. Dianne Murphy, former Director of Intercollegiate Athletics and Physical Education at Columbia University, established the Dr. M. Dianne Murphy Female Student-Athlete Leaders for Life Program at Tennessee Tech.
The program is designed to provide mentoring and networking opportunities for female student-athletes at Tennessee Tech with successful female role models. The Leaders for Life Program features keynote addresses by women in the sports industry and women in leadership positions, as well as social networking opportunities.
Golden Wings Awards
The Golden Wings Awards, which enters its sixth year, is an end-of-the-year award ceremony for the Tennessee Tech University student-athletes to honor and celebrate their academic and athletic accomplishments over the past complete seasons. With the cancellation of last year's spring seasons due to COVID-19, this year's awards time frame has become simpler than in year's past when multiple years were used to allow for a more complete and fair field of choices. This year, all awards will be selected from the accomplishments from the 2020-21 athletic year.
Wings Up Caravans
What exactly are the Wings Up Caravans? Each summer, Tech Athletics hits the road to spread excitement and information for the upcoming seasons for all 14 of the department's programs, making several stops all over the region. In 2018, the Wings Up Caravans will visit 10 different locations. The events span the months of July and August this season.
