The University of California, Berkeley sophomore swimmer Missy Franklin, the NCAA and Pac-12 Swimmer of the Year, received another distinction recently to add to her growing list of accomplishments: the Honda Cup, awarded to the 2015 Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year.

The Collegiate Women Sports Awards has honored the nation’s top NCAA women athletes for 39 years, recognizing superior athletic skills, leadership, academic excellence and eagerness to participate in community service. Since commencing its sponsorship in 1986, Honda has provided more than $3 million in institutional grants to the universities of the award winners and nominees to support women’s athletics programs at the institutions.

    This is wonderful, I stumbled upon this information about HMC while doing research for a school project and I was left very impressed. It is great to see such a strong example of corporation working as an advocate for woman athletes all over the United States. I am proud to use Honda as a positive example of not only diversity but corporate social responsibility as a whole. Thank you for your contribution, it has not gone unnoticed.
