Carolina senior Kenny Selmon found success both in the classroom and on the track during his four years as a student-athlete at UNC-Chapel Hill. He will add to the list of accomplishments when he obtains his undergraduate business degree on Commencement Day on May 13 at Kenan Stadium.
As a member of the track and field team, Selmon recently ran the fastest time in the nation and the fifth-fastest time in the world in the 400-meter hurdles. His hard work and training routine on the track have also helped him succeed in the classroom. Last summer, he interned in the commercial leadership division at Coca-Cola’s Atlanta headquarters. He chose the internship over competing in the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, even though he would have been one of the favorites to win a medal.
“Having a successful college career, in a sense, has just given me confidence about what I can be thrown into and then come out of,” Selmon said. “I’m going to take that with me in everything that I do.”
