The Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) recently its All-Academic Team. With a mission of supporting our students, who happen to be athletes, we are proud of all 107 student-athletes who attained this recognition.
“We couldn’t be more pleased that our student-athletes are getting it done off the field,” Director of Athletics John Eason said. “The classroom is where real champions are built. Our young ladies and young men come to FAMU to get an education first, and this shows that they are getting it done. The biggest play they can make at FAMU, is crossing that stage at graduation.”
1,366 student-athletes from the conference’s 13 member institutions who achieved academic success during the spring 2017 and fall 2017 semesters were honored. The team honors student-athletes, including sophomores to seniors, with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better.
“I am excited to congratulate the 1,366 student-athletes who have maintained a 3.0 or better grade point average during this academic school year,” said MEAC Commissioner Dennis E. Thomas. “I would like to commend the administrators, athletic academic support staffs and personnel, coaches, institutions, and parents for their contributions to the academic success of these student-athletes.”
