At the Wayne State University Athletic Academic Recognition luncheon on April 18, 2019, women's cross country and track & field student-athlete Jackie Feist received the Deans' Award for having the highest cumulative GPA of all WSU student-athletes in the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
WSU Applebaum Associate Dean for Pharmacy Richard Lucarotti presented the award, saying, "Congratulations on your athletic accomplishments in track for WSU this year. You should be proud of your student athlete record with both athletic achievements and academic success in the first year of the PharmD program."
