KidsPeace Mobile Support Specialist Cristie Ansbach was honored for athletic contributions by her Alma Mater, Alvernia University. Last Month, Cristie was inducted into the Hall of Fame for extraordinary accomplishments as a point guard for the teams that hold the four best winning percentages in the school's history. Cristie went 19-8 in her freshman hear, helping the team win an ECAC South Championship, and went 22-6 the following 3 years, attending the NCAA Tournament each of those years and winning a PA Athletic Conference championship in 1998.
Cristie was PAC Player of the Year twice and an All American two times as well. She has the fourth highest career scores for the school, 1,479 points, and was Most Valuable Player at the ECAC South Championship as a freshman. She also leads in career assists, steals and is second in free throws and free throw percentage. Cristie also ran cross country at Alvernia and was named most valuable runner and All-PAC for her efforts.
Cristie is a wonderful role model for the children she support at KidsPeace, showing girls in particular that they can succeed if they work hard and persevere in developing their talents. She works late night at the KidsPeace Psychiatric Hospital, averting potential crises and providing intense assistance when crises do occur. The kids respect her for her achievements and for her work with them at KidsPeace.
