South Haven High School athletic standout Jordyn Holland capped her senior year by being named WSJM-FM's Student Athlete of the Year for Van Buren and Cass counties.
Each year, WSJM, a news and sports radio station based in St. Joseph, selects weekly winners for the Student Athlete of the Week award based on athletic performance and academic prowess. Those winners are then compiled at the end of the school year to select a yearly winner. An independent panel then looks at all award winners from the area and votes on the year's most outstanding student athlete.
