141 PFEIFFER STUDENT-ATHLETES LAND ON 2011 FALL PRESIDENTIAL HONOR ROLL IN CONFERENCE CAROLINAS

HIGH POINT, N.C.- Conference Carolinas is proud to announce that 1,552 student-athletes, 141 of which come from Pfeiffer University, have been named to the 2011 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).

Conference Carolinas Commissioner Alan Patterson shared some of his thoughts about the outstanding number of student-athletes represented in the 2011 Fall Presidential Honor Roll “It is pleasing but not surprising that members average over 125 student-athletes with outstanding grade point average. Conference Carolinas is in the top 4 of all Division II conference in graduation rate and annually student-athletes academically exceed the performance of the student population as a whole.”

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 2011 Fall Season, King College led all league members with 204 student-athletes represented. They were followed closely by North Greenville University with 171 and Limestone College with 163 honorees.

Conference Carolinas is a premier NCAA Division II athletics conference made up of 12 schools from North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. These institutions consist of: Barton College, Belmont Abbey College, Coker College, Converse College, Erskine College, King College, Lees-McRae College, Limestone College, Mount Olive College, North Greenville University, Pfeiffer University, and Queens University of Charlotte.
