Outside of the pool, Chan was selected to the NJAC All-Star Team three times and was named to the TCNJ Dean’s List six times. She was a member of the TCNJ chapter of The Hidden Opponent, a mental health advocacy group for student-athletes. She was also a four-year member of the TCNJ National Student Speech-Language Hearing Association.

Conference-level nominations will be forwarded to the NCAA Woman of the Year Selection Committee, which will choose the top 10 winners from each of the three NCAA divisions. The NCAA will announce the top 30 winners on ncaa.org in October.
