Amber Kuykendall, who starred for the TSU golf team and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in 2019, has been selected for the latest Nike Yardrunners class, representing TSU in the process. Kuykendall is also pursuing professional golfing on the Women’s All Pro Tour (WAPT).
To honor the rich tradition, history, and contributions of HBCUs and their alums on international sport and culture, Nike Yardrunners was established in 2020. The program, which Nike HBCU graduates started, gives teams at Nike the chance to collaborate with HBCU trailblazers and community creatives to produce motivational storytelling and acts of generosity with and for the community.
