Heather Whitlow, a Senior student-athlete at Glasgow Christian Academy, signed her letter of intent to continue her athletic career as a student at Western Kentucky University and a member of the Track and Field Team. Heather is the daughter of Dr.s Robert and Cheryl Whitlow, optometrists.
As a large crowd showed up to support her, she had many people to thank, including her father who is also her coach. Her new coach at WKU sent his regards via GCA Principal, Tracy Shaw.
WCLU interviewed Heather to ask why she chose WKU.
Whitlow says, as of now, she wants to be an orthopedic surgeon.
In a speech she prepared for the signing, Whitlow says she has a network of supporters at GCA, and will have many more with her new Track and Field family “on the hill”.
