Four student athletes from Stony Brook University have been named recipients of the 2017-18 Scholar Athlete Award by State University of New York Chancellor Kristina M. Johnson. This award 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 Johnson. “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.”
Student athletes were nominated by their campus athletic director to be considered for this award. 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.
These student athletes and many others were honored on May 7 at Stony Brook’s annual Wolfie Awards.
