Pfeiffer Athletics Puts 141 Student-Athletes on Conference Carolinas' Presidential Honor Roll
January 24, 2011
HIGH POINT, N.C. - Conference Carolinas is proud to announce that 1104 student-athletes have been named to the 2010 Fall Presidential Honor Roll. Each institution within the conference has emphasized their commitment to academic importance as they have continued to have student-athletes achieve a grade point average of 3.2 or higher (on a 4.0 scale) at each of their institutions to achieve this honor. Conference Carolinas continues to emphasize “Academics and Athletics Working Together” as each school strives to grow their Presidential Honor Roll each and every year.
The new Presidential Honor Roll recognizes student-athletes who have earned a 3.20 grade-point average (up from 3.00 in previous years) on a 4.00 scale for the semester and includes freshman and transfer student athletes (that have participated in either a conference or non-conference sponsored sport).
The Conference Carolinas Presidential Honor Roll is awarded twice a year covering each of the fall and spring academic semesters and is based on meeting the criteria at the end of the previous semester. For the 2010 Fall Season, Limestone College led all league members with 148 student-athletes represented. They were followed closely by Pfeiffer University with 141 and Queens University of Charlotte with 137 honorees. Click HERE for the full list of honorees!
