MJCC Thunder Hall of Fame 2017

GREENVILLE, Ky. (9/11/17) — Students Thomas Little, Sycorya Lankford, Azhane’ Mcknight, Savion Anderson, Kendrick Key and Alaiquan Daugherty were recently inducted into the Muhlenberg Job Corps’ Hall of Fame. The students were also recognized during a student assembly for achieving the status of an outstanding MJCC athlete.

Muhlenberg Job Corps has an outstanding record with basketball and softball. The men’s and women’s Basketball teams have won two conference championships in the last four years, and the softball coed team has won three conference championships in the last four years, according to MJCC spokeswoman Jodi Ashby.

To be eligible for the induction, the students were required to play the majority of a season in two of our conference sports and a championship must be earned in at least one of those sports. All six of the athletes inducted played softball and basketball with Coach Jordan Strader’s leadership.

“Each student exhibited a teachable mentality, a willingness to learn and a desire to improve on a daily basis.  I am very proud of their accomplishments, and their hard work. I was very lucky to be part of their growth”, said Strader.

“I play every sport that I can get in on and I thank god for my athletic ability,” said Anderson. “It feels good to be able to use those skills here at Muhlenberg Job Corps while I work on job skills in my trade. For all six of us, this brought us closer as teammates both in sports and as students. It was awesome to call my mom and tell her that I had received this award, so she can see that I am doing more here than just learning a trade. I am a part of something. It was really great to be recognized and it is a blessing to have been uplifted in this way.”
