Last year, Nicole Selvaggio, of Oak Lawn, was one of five alumni inducted into the 2016 Alumni Hall of Fame at Moraine Valley Community College.
Selvaggio earned an Associate in Arts degree in 2013 before going on to graduate with a bachelor’s degree from Saint Xavier University and a master’s degree from Southern New Hampshire University.
While a student at Moraine Valley, Selvaggio played two years on the tennis team earning numerous awards for her athleticism and academics, including being an undefeated region and conference singles champion and a national qualifier. She also was the head women’s tennis team coach at Moraine Valley for three years, where she was named regional coach of the year, as well as conference coach of the year. Selvaggio served as a facility manager at the college’s Health, Fitness and Recreation Center, plus continues to serve as a volunteer at the Moraine Valley Speaking and Writing Center.
“We are pleased to add Nicole to the list of those being inducted this year into the Alumni Hall of Fame,” said Patricia Trebe, assistant director of annual giving and alumni relations at the Moraine Valley Foundation. “Nicole has distinguished herself at Moraine Valley as a scholar athlete, coach and now as an adjunct professor.
