Laing named a conference nominee for NCAA Woman of the Year award

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Former University of Alabama women's track and field All-American Kim Laing has been named a conference finalist for the 2011 NCAA Woman of the Year Award.

Laing, a native of St. Catherine's, Jamaica, is one of two nominees from the Southeastern Conference to join 142 other female student-athletes representing multiple sports across Division I,II and III to be chosen by their conference as a nominee. The Woman of the Year award honors female student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their collegiate career in the areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, community service and leadership.

She recently received her graduate degree in communications studies after completing an athletic career at Alabama that saw her earn All-America honors in the 100-meter hurdles and a pair of SEC Championships in the hurdles.

Off the oval, Laing has been extremely active in both the community and campus. She has assisted with various events in the Athletic Department's Think Pink program to raise cancer awareness and has volunteered with the International Student Organization. She has also devoted more than 90 combined hours to assisting local schools through the C.I.T.Y. Program and serving on campus as an Arts & Sciences Peer Advisor.  

She also earned the Arthur Ashe Sports Scholar Award in 2011 and was a finalist for the Paul W. Bryant Student-Athlete Award.
