Two Samford University students are this year's recipients of the Bernice Finger Award as the two most outstanding health, physical education, recreation and dance students in Alabama. The Finger awards are given each year by the Alabama State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (ASAHPERD) to two outstanding future professionals.

    Samford seniors Sarah Fletcher of Cape Girardeau, Mo., and Tyler Davis of Elkhart, Ind., were recognized at the Spring ASAHPERD meeting.

    Selection is based on academic achievement and service to the student's university and community.

    The Finger Award honors the late Dr. Bernice Finger, longtime professor at the University of Montevallo.
