This week Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher announced 79 recipients of the 2011-12 Scholar Athlete Award, which recognizes outstanding academic excellence and athletic achievement.
“SUNY students who earn this award have excelled in our classrooms as well as our athletic programs,” said Chancellor Zimpher. “With an average GPA of 3.6 and a number of championship competitions among them, this year’s scholar athlete awardees are a highly commendable group.”In order to be considered for this award, student-athletes were nominated by their campus athletic director. Nominees’ academic credentials and athletic accomplishments were then reviewed by a panel of athletic directors from across the State University system and members of the provost’s office.
A complete list of this year’s winners is available online.
Congratulations to these exemplary student athletes!
