According to a press release by University of North Georgia Athletics, UNG announced that the university has rolled out the HawkEm 101 Student-Athlete Mentor Program, which will give incoming freshman and transfer student-athletes the opportunity to engage and learn from experienced UNG student-athletes.

The athletic administration graduate assistant, Ashley Beaton, stated that, “Not only is HawkEm 101 in place to help promote education on responsible alcohol usage and overall student-athlete wellbeing, but to also encourage cross team collaboration and foster authentic relationships between the student-athletes.” She also points out that, “Shayna (Lawrence), Derrick (Pickvet) and Steven (Bower) have had such a positive impact on this program and they are a big reason why HawkEm 101 has been such a success in its first year. Also, the support from our administration has propelled us to take this initiative and run with it. I really do believe that this program will help enhance the student-athlete experience here at UNG and add to the championship culture we have, not only in athletics but in life.”

HawkEm 101 was inspiredly a group of UNG student-athletes and administrators after they attended the Division II APPLE Training Institute in September 2017 in Reston, Va. UNG baseball player, Steven Bower, explained that, “After having the opportunity to go to the Apple Conference with Sydney (Sprague), Derrick, and Shayna, I realized how much more information there was about drugs and alcohol than we knew about,”

The intent is that the program will not only help educate our new student-athletes about life as a UNG student-athlete, but also foster relationships across all teams and student-athletes.
