Annalicia Geeter '12
Annalicia Geeter '12 developed her skills as a leader not only in classrooms and on the lacrosse field, but in the community.
In her sophomore year, she and a classmate founded Northern Star Sports, a nonprofit after-school program for Chester youth, which now serves about 50 second through fifth graders at Stetser Elementary School in Chester.
She also served on the Student Sport Network, which organized opportunities for students to network with individuals in the sports industry, and was an active member in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program. She was a four-year starter on the Widener women’s lacrosse team, and in 2011 was named to the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association Division III Academic Honor Roll.
After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in business management and a concentration in sport management and marketing, Geeter accepted a position as a lacrosse coach and player in Manchester, England. “I’m contracted to be in England for one year, but my employer really wants me to stay for two after learning what I’ve done in Chester with Northern Star Sports,” Geeter said. “I hope to recruit children who normally wouldn’t be able to afford to play lacrosse to learn and enjoy the sport and give them the opportunity to develop both talent and character with my guidance.”
