Missouri Valley Conference Announces 2005-06 Academic Awards
Thirty-six student-athletes highlight more than 1,000 who earned selection to the 2005-06 Missouri Valley Conference Honor Roll, as announced by the league office. Those 36 student-athletes earned the league's highest academic achievement by capturing the Missouri Valley Conference President's Council Academic Excellence Award.
The President's Council Academic Excellence Award requires a minimum 3.8 cumulative grade point average (through fall 2005 semester), participation in athletics a minimum of two years, and the student-athlete must be within 18 hours of graduation.
Also, 346 student-athletes received the league's Commissioner's Academic Excellence Award. That requires a minimum grade point average of 3.5 for the previous two semesters, a minimum 3.2 grade point average for the current term (Fall 2005), and participation in athletics. Freshmen are not eligible.
In addition, the Missouri Valley Conference has announced its 2005-06 Honor Roll, which recognizes academic achievement of student-athletes. To qualify for the Valley Honor Roll, a student-athlete must have recorded a minimum 3.2 grade point average for a specified term (Fall 2005), must have been a member of an athletics team, and must have a minimum of 12 hours of enrollment during the fall.
