HIGH POINT, N.C.--The Conference Carolinas has announced the 2010 Spring Presidential Honor Roll with Lees-McRae having 159 student-athletes on the list, which is the second highest student-athletes honored in the conference.
A total of 1401 student-athletes have been named to the 2010 Spring Presidential Honor Roll from the Conference Carolinas. 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 3.0 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. In order to be eligible for this honor, the student-athletes achieve the 3.0 grade point average at their member institution for the previous semester and have participated in either a conference or non-conference sponsored sport. The student-athlete must have been in attendance at the member institution for at least two full-time semesters.
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 Spring Season, Pfeiffer University led all league members with 168 student-athletes represented. They were followed closely by Lees-McRae College with 159 and Belmont Abbey College with 146 honorees.
