The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences congratulates Molly Hannis, 2015 graduate of the Recreation and Sport Management program in Kinesiology, Recreation and Sports Studies (KRSS). Hannis, finishing second in the 200-meter breaststroke, will head to Rio next month to compete in the 2016 Olympics. Saddened by the news of the passing of Pat Summitt, Hannis wished to honor Pat Summitt with her performance. Hannis is one of three Tennessee swimmers headed to the Rio Games, joining Kira Toussaint, senior in KRSS and 2011 graduate, Martina Moravcikova.
