HomeTown: Radcliff, KY
BioComing to Morehead State University was a no brainer for women’s basketball player Linda Dixon of Radcliff. With the close proximity to home and the welcoming environment of Morehead, Dixon was easily sold on bringing her talent to the Eagle community.
Dixon, a senior paralegal studies major, has enjoyed her time at the University on and off the court. Not only is she captain of the team but is very involved around campus participating in various organizations. From the classroom, to the practice court, to extracurricular, she utilizes almost every hour of the day.
Leadership skills are one thing of which Dixon is proud. According to her coaches and friends, she leads by example on the court and in the classroom as well. In May, she is on tract to graduate with honors.
“Going to class helps maintain good grades as well as doing extra studying,” she said.
Everything did not come easy at first for Dixon. She admits there was a slight adjustment period when she first arrived at MSU. Being a military brat, however, helped Dixon ease into a new setting. She brags about her coaches and teammates but also highlights the friends she has made.
“One of the best things about MSU is the people you meet,” she said.
Dixon enjoyed the small classroom settings and the personal relationships with faculty and staff, one of the things that sold her on MSU.
“MSU is really good at putting people in the right places to network,” she said.
After graduation, Dixon will apply for law school, with plans of serving as a criminal justice lawyer. In high school, she was inspired by television shows and took a business law class and was afforded the opportunity to attend a law seminar in Washington D.C. The experience and information she received was priceless.
Before leaving MSU, Dixon has to attend to some unfinished business. With the tough out of conference schedule the Lady Eagles have played, she knows the team is primed for conference play and an Ohio Valley Conference title.
“There have been ups and downs, but I would not trade the experience for anything in the world. I have enjoyed playing ball at MSU and the college atmosphere.”
