Heathwood 2020 graduate Kit Mullins has been named this year's female recipient of the South Carolina Independent School Association's Bill Simpson Award. She was selected from a field of 70 nominations.

The Bill Simpson Award is the highest award presented to an individual student-athlete by The South Carolina Independent School Association. The award is named in memory of Mr. Bill Simpson, who served SCISA in the late 1970s and early 1980s and did much to shape the athletic structure of the association.

The Bill Simpson Award is presented annually to one graduating male and one graduating female student-athlete. Criteria for selection include: proven record of academic achievement, athletic success while lettering in at least two varsity sports, community service and student leadership.

“Kit Mullins personifies every aspect that the Bill Simpson Award stands for in student achievement, student service, and student leadership”, said SCISA Athletic Director Mike Fanning.

“We are incredibly proud of Kit Mullins and excited about this noteworthy award and well deserved recognition of her accomplishments from SCISA,” said Heathwood Hall Head of School Chris Hinchey. “Kit Mullins is a young women of strong character, who works diligently in both the classroom and on the athletic fields, and she has left an indelible mark on Heathwood Hall.”

Kit, who lettered in both tennis and soccer at Heathwood, will attend Washington & Lee University in the fall.
