"Catie, who has been president of her sorority and head tutor in the computer science lab, is also a recipient of the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship, the premier undergraduate award in the United States," notes Campbell, who is 1969 graduate of DePauw. 

The report also features comments from Mary Bretscher, women's Catie with Trophyswimming coach at DePauw.

Catherine "Catie" Baker was selected as DePauw's top senior female student-athlete by DePauw's athletics department as she earned the Amy Hasbrook Award. She was recently awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship to support Ph.D. studies she will begin in Fall 2012.
