In 2007, NIU volleyball senior setter Kristin Hoffman was named to the Beacon News All-Area First Team as a standout senior for Batavia High School. Four years later, Hoffman runs the show for the Huskies, who are receiving votes in the AVCA Top 25 Poll, and is NIU volleyball's first Academic All-American (2010).
However, Hoffman isn't the only one from the 2007 Beacon News All-Area First Team to go on to have a successful college career, as Rick Armstrong documents in a feature story Tuesday. Click here to read.

Recently, Northern Illinois volleyball's Kristin Hoffman
went on a community service tour with Students Today Leaders Forever
(STLF). During her week-long trip, the junior took NIUHuskies.com's
Flip Cam with her to give Huskie fans a glimpse of her trek and the
people she reached out to.
Most students like to get away and go wild on spring break. But not
Hoffman, who has been one of NIU's most community service-dedicated
student-athletes. For her spring break, Hoffman wanted to be involved
with STLF because the organization's mission reflects her own personal
values. Founded in 2003, STLF's mission is to reveal leadership through
service, relationships, and action. Whether the setter is on or off
the court, Hoffman displays those characterstics in community service
trips, leading the NIU volleyball Relay For Life team and on the court
as the captain of the offense. The video below shows Hoffman in action,
displaying such wonderful characteristics.
