UNG Places 116 Student-Athletes On Peach Belt Conference Presidential Honor Roll

The Peach Belt Conference has announced that a record-breaking 1,384 student-athletes have been named to the Presidential Honor Roll for the 2012-13 season and the University of North Georgia's continued comittment to academic success was evident as 93 student-athletes garnered the prestigious distinction.

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.

UNG's total of 116 student-athletes bettered last year's mark of 95 honorees. 

The 1,384 student-athletes surpasses the old record of 1,137 set in 2011-12 and gives the Peach Belt 1,000 or more honorees for the fourth year in a row. Each student-athlete will receive a certificate from the conference office.
