Lake Land College honored Tyler Schuring of Arthur and Kassidy Bonebrake of Crawfordsville, Ind., with the 2017 Male and Female Athlete of the Year awards on May 7 at the Laker Academics Awards Gala.

In addition, more than 25 athletes were honored for their hard work and academic success during their time as Lake Land athletes.

In order to be considered for the Athlete of the Year award, nominees must have at least a 3.65 GPA. All Laker coaches nominated athletes based on academic, athletic and off-the-field performance, as well as leadership skills. Out of that pool, a voting committee of Lake Land College administration and the academic counselor, Bryan Burrell, who advises athletes, voted on a female and male athlete.

Schuring said in his acceptance speech that he was very humbled to receive the award, but said it wouldn’t have been possible without so many of his supporters along the way, thanking his coaches, teammates and family.

Schuring plans to enter the Lake Land College Physical Therapy Assistant program and help out with the Laker Men’s Basketball team next year.

Bonebrake said without the guidance of her family, her coach Dave Johnson, and high school coaches, she wouldn’t have been as successful as able to go onto her next step in her education and basketball career.

Bonebrake is continuing her education at University of Montevallo in Alabama, where she will double major in biology and exercise science
