"As a Bucknell alum and former rowing team member, I am very excited to be back as part of the coaching staff," said Kannor. "The team is looking better than ever and I am definitely looking forward to a great experience and successful year."
Kannor graduated with a grade-point average of better than 3.0 and a degree in animal behavior with a minor in neuropsychology. Following graduation she volunteered with Hawaii Volcanoes National Park , working on the Hawksbill Sea Turtle Recovery Project.
