Albany – State University of New York Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson today announced 84 recipients of the 2017-18 Scholar Athlete Award, which recognizes outstanding academic excellence and athletic achievement.

 

"It is my pleasure to congratulate our Scholar Athlete awardees for their achievement in the classroom, and on the playing field," said SUNY Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson. "Whether competing at a Division I or intramural level, all of those honored today are committed to excellence in their athletic pursuits, sportsmanship, and personal development. They balance a challenging workload, while demonstrating leadership and service."

 

In order to be considered for this award, student athletes were nominated by their campus athletic director. Nominees' academic credentials and athletic achievements were then reviewed by a panel of athletic directors from across SUNY system and members of the SUNY provost's office.
