Megan Kirkland has never been afraid of hard work, on and off the court. The rising junior on South Carolina’s volleyball team is a former preferred walk-on who was recently awarded an athletics scholarship, and she has also been an exceptional performer in the classroom, earning straight A’s while also leading the team in community service hours. “Megan is the model student-athlete,” said South Carolina volleyball head coach Scott Swanson.
