Arkin Awarded Missouri Valley Conference Good Neighbor Award
Missouri State student-athlete David Arkin, a sophomore offensive guard on the MSU football team, has been named to the initial class of Missouri Valley Conference Good Neighbor Award recipients the league announced this week.
The MVC created the MVC Good Neighbor Award in an effort to honor model student-athletes. Ten student-athletes have been named by Commissioner Doug Elgin as the honorees for this fall.
In order to be eligible for the award, the student-athlete must be in good academic standing, must demonstrate good citizenship through good sportsmanship and significant community service, and must participate in a sport, during the season of recognition. The Valley will recognize 10 student-athletes three times annually (fall, winter, spring), for a total of 30 honorees. Institutions select their Good Neighbor Award honorees.
