CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Big South Conference placed 1,347 out of 3,033 student-athletes – 44.4 percent -- on its prestigious annual Presidential Honor Roll list for the 2008-09 academic season, it was announced today by Big South Conference Commissioner Kyle B. Kallander. To be named to the Presidential Honor Roll, student-athletes must maintain a grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or better for the recently-completed academic year. The 44.4 percentage marks the fifth-straight year above the 40 percent threshold.
“The Big South Conference has always taken a lot of pride in the academic accomplishments of its student-athletes,” said Kallander. “To have nearly half of all student-athletes make the Presidential Honor Roll for the fifth consecutive year is a reflection of the outstanding individuals in the Conference and their priorities. We are all extremely proud of the achievements of these fine young men and women.”
The school-by-school listing of the Big South’s Presidential Honor Roll is attached to this release, while a sport-by-sport listing is available on the Conference’s web site, www.BigSouthSports.com.
