COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Hannah Hood, a freshman outside hitter on the Texas A&M volleyball team, has received the Class of 2015 Class Star Award for Academics, the Texas A&M Class Councils announced.

A 4.0 student from Austin, Texas (Westlake High School), Hood is currently a general studies major with aspirations of enrolling in the business honors program in the near future.

Presented by the Texas A&M Class Councils, Class Stars is a university-wide awards program that annually recognizes outstanding members of each class in five separate categories: academics, athletics, leadership, service and spirit.

Athletically, Hood was the only freshman on A&M's 2011 volleyball squad that finished the year 23-8 after advancing to the NCAA Championship second round.
