Drury Announces 31 GLVC Council of Presidents’ Academic Excellence Award Winners

by Ed Beach

Thirty-one Drury University student-athletes earned the Great Lakes Valley Conference Council of Presidents’ Academic Excellence Award for their work in the classroom in 2019-20.

The recipients of the GLVC Council of Presidents’ Academic Excellence Award exemplify the outstanding student-athletes in the GLVC. Each honoree has exhausted his or her eligibility in the intercollegiate sport in which they participated and maintained at least a 3.5 grade point average throughout their academic career.

In addition, to be eligible for the award, the student-athlete must have competed in the GLVC for a minimum of two years and completed 96 credit hours. A student-athlete can only earn the distinguished honor one time in his or her career.

Ten of Drury’s 18 sports that compete in the GLVC had student-athletes earn a place on the list. Baseball had nine recipients of the award, while softball and women’s soccer had four each.

Drury’s total of 31 Council of Presidents’ award winners is 10 more than last year, and the department has now produced 145 such honorees in the last six years.
