2023 Fall Semester Turf Star: Andrew Hylen

Please join the Kelly Family Sports Center in congratulating Andrew Hylen for receiving the Fall Semester Turf Star award! Each semester, this award is given to a team member who goes above and beyond the call of duty in order to ensure the facility they work in is ready and available to anyone who may walk through the doors. Andrew has been a major help in doing just that. He is always eager to help cover shifts, prepare for events, learn new aspects of facility management, and assist anyone who needs it all with a smile on his face. Andrew is from Nunica, MI and is a member of the cross country and track teams. He just graduated with his bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education - English and Psychology and is now working on a master’s degree in Higher Education. After he graduates, he would like to pursue a doctorate degree in Sports Psychology, coach collegiate track and field and cross country, write a book about his time running at GVSU, and of course, keep running! Congratulations Andrew!
