Penn State's Joanna Lohman, (2005, women's soccer)
Lohman was the first four-time First Team All-Big Ten selection in the school's history and captained the Nittany Lions soccer team in 2002-2003. She was Big Ten Player of the Year in 2003 while leading Penn State to their fourth straight conference title, and her 3.98 GPA while studying business earned her four-time Academic All-American honors. After playing professionally, Lohman moved to Spain with her partner and founded the JoLi Academy, a training center for young female soccer players in India and helped launch an organization that encourages schools to create safer spaces for lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual and questioning athletes called GO! Athletes. As Vice President of Tenant Consulting, LLC, a commercial real estate firm in the Washington DC area, she also helped create the first "carbon neutral calculator" for office buildings, resulting in an invitation to meet former Vice President Al Gore.
