Scholarship Recipient Amr Metwaly
Congratulations are in order for Shocker Rower Amr Metwaly.
On April 20, 2017 Amr was informed that he was the recipient of the 2017-2018 Wadsworth Family Student-Athlete Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to an undergraduate student-athlete enrolled full-time at Wichita State University in the College of Engineering. Amr, knowing that all full-time student-athletes in the College of Engineering were eligible for this scholarship, is very thankful and honored to be the recipient.
In December of 2015 Amr approached Shocker Rowing's Head Coach, Calvin Cupp, inquiring how to join the team. After discussing a few options Amr decided that he wanted to begin training with the team as soon as possible. Amr had his very first practice on Friday, December 4, 2015 and we have seen him every day since. Amr joined Shocker Rowing with a great attitude and a passion to improve and this award has given him even more motivation to continue working.
