JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – ETSU senior Macy Carrier has been named to the Google Cloud Academic All-America Women’s Cross Country/Track & Field third team by the Collegiate Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
The latest honor follows the Southern Conference naming Carrier the winner of the 2018 Insurance Office of America postgraduate scholarship on April 5, and after Carrier earned a spot on CoSIDA’s Google Cloud Academic All-District Team on May 30.
The human services major has been named to the SoCon All-Academic Team every semester she’s been eligible – starting with fall 2015 -- and is a candidate to earn the honor again when the spring 2018 squad is announced later this month.
The Bluff City, Tennessee, native maintained a perfect 4.0 grade point average in her time at ETSU.
Athletically, Carrier made headlines by earning all-freshman honors at the 2014 Southern Conference Cross Country Championships. She would finish in the top 30 each year of her career.
In track, Carrier earned All-SoCon honors as part of the distance medley team that finished third in the 2016 Indoor Track and Field Championships, was runner-up in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the 2016 Outdoor Championships, and reached the finals in both the 3,000-meter and 5,000-meter runs at the 2017 Indoor Championships. She was team captain in 2016 and 2017.
Carrier has also put in more than 1,500 hours as a community volunteer. Much of her volunteer work came with The Well, a campus-based Christian outreach organization, through which she’s traveled to India to lead Vacation Bible School training and to Louisiana to help rebuilding efforts in the wake of damaging floods.
Carrier also volunteered with Cornerstone Village, an assisted-living facility; the Salvation Army; Samaritan’s Purse, packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child; and the Winshape Camp, a Christian camp. She additionally volunteered in the Johnson City Medical Center’s Occupational Therapy department at Johnson City Medical Center and was an intern at Mini Miracles, a pediatric therapy clinic.
She also was coordinator for a pair of 5K races, raising more than $8,000 each for Living Water International and for East Tennessee Christian Home and Academy.
Carrier will attend graduate school with plans to become an occupational therapist.
