AUGUSTA, Ga. — The work of UNC Pembroke’s student-athletes in the classroom paid dividends this week when 135 Braves were named to the Peach Belt Conference Presidential Honor Roll, the league office announced.
It is the seventh-straight year that UNCP has sent 100 or more student-athletes to the distinguished listing – the longest stretch of any of the league’s 14 member institutions. The Black & Gold has raked in a league-best 982 PBC Presidential Honor Roll laurels over that span as well.
The Presidential Honor Roll recognizes all student-athletes at the 14 PBC member institutions who had a GPA of 3.0 or higher for the academic year. The honor roll has been divided into four groups: Presidential Scholars, Bronze Scholars, Silver Scholars and Gold Scholars. All student-athletes with a GPA from 3.0 to 3.24 are Presidential Scholars while Bronze Scholars are 3.25 to 3.49; Silver 3.50 to 3.74 and Gold Scholars are those with a 3.75 to 4.00.
The league honored 1,630 student-athletes with Tuesday’s announcement, surpassing the old record of 1,607 set in 2014-15 and giving the PBC 1,000 or more honorees for the seventh year in a row. Each student-athlete will receive a certificate from the conference office.
