Every year, Temple University Athletics recognizes the ten student athletes with the highest grade point averages. This year, three of those ten students were from the College of Public Health: Daniele Raneri, Lea Britton, and Assaf Zoor.
Asaaf Zoor just completed his first year as a student in the Doctor of Physical Therapy program and competes on the men’s gymnastics team at Temple. His accelerated program allowed him to begin PT graduate school after just three years of undergraduate study.
Daniele Raneri is a recent graduate of CPH with a major in Speech-Language Pathology and a minor in Public Health. In addition to playing softball for Temple, Daniele was the secretary for the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association, a peer instructor, a Diamond Peer Teacher, and a mentor for Kids Write and Create. She graduated in three years and will be beginning a Masters’ degree in Hearing and Speech Sciences in the fall.
Lea Britton is a rising senior in the Kinesiology Department with a minor in Biology. She plays women’s lacrosse for Temple and participates in a pen pal program, where she writes to an 8th grade class about the importance of academics, time management, and goal setting. “I was excited to use my experience as a student-athlete to be a role model to younger students who are not that far from college,” says Lea.
CHPSW congratulates our Trustee Ten Student Athletes for their hard work and achievements.
