Cecile Reynaud Volleyball Scholarship
The Cecile Reynaud Volleyball Scholarship was created in honor of Dr. Cecile Reynaud, who coached the Seminole Volleyball Team for 26 years. This scholarship is awarded to a volleyball student athlete each year.
Just one year after graduating from Southwest Missouri State in 1976, Dr. Cecile Reynaud was named head coach of Florida State's volleyball and over the next 26 years she established the program as one of the nation's best and in the process became one of the country's most well respected volleyball coaches.
Over the course of her career at FSU, Reynaud earned a master's and Ph.D. from Florida State while heading the volleyball program from 1976-2001. She won 635 career matches at FSU which ranks her among the Top 10 in Division 1A career victories. Ten of Reynaud's Florida State teams won berths in the NCAA Tournament and three in the AIAW Tournament, the governing body of women's athletics prior to 1982. She won six Metro Conference Championships and one ACC title. She was named Metro Coach of the Year in 1988 and 1989, AVCA South Regional Coach of the Year in 1989, Florida AIAW Coach of the Year in 1991 and ACC Coach of the Year in 1992 and 2000.
Dr. Cecile Reynaud's name is synonymous with the sport of volleyball at Florida State as she takes her rightful place in the FSU Hall of Fame. In 2017, Dr Reynaud was also inducted into the American Volleyball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
