The 2022 ESPYS have a local feel to them. As part of this year's ESPYS, ESPN Cleveland presented Honorary ESPYS to outstanding honorees in the community. And one of John Carroll University's own is a winner.
JCU's Senior Director of Athletics Michelle Morgan has been presented with the ESPY for Female Administrator of the Year via ESPN Cleveland.
"This is an individual honor and recognition, and I am humbled, but it's the byproduct of the team I'm grateful to be a part of. We have a wonderful team in place and we've been blessed to have great success as a department," said Morgan. "I want to thank Katie Hine and Joe Ginley for nominating me for this award. It's a tremendous honor to win an Honorary ESPY. Some of the greatest, most influential figures in sports history have been awarded with ESPYs, so it's extremely humbling and shocking to receive this recognition. It's an honor to be seen for my work in the JCU and Division III communities."
The 2022 ESPYS, presented by Capital One, celebrated the best players, teams, and moments in the world of sports. The award winners were honored Wednesday, July 20, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. Morgan's award was presented to her in advance as a surprise on Friday, July 15 in JCU's Herb Eisele Blue Gold Room by ESPN Cleveland's Bridget Linton, who was also on the red carpet in LA on Wednesday. Morgan is one of just 15 Honorary ESPY winners from five cities across the country (Cleveland, Chicago, LA, Madison, and New York).
