IU Southeast KIAC Scholar

Athletes Announced

Thirty-three IU Southeast student athletes were named

In order to be named a KIAC Scholar Athlete, a student

athlete must have achieved at least a cumulative GPA of 3.25

after at least two semesters at a KIAC institution.

“It is very difficult to juggle both schoolwork and practice

schedules and maintain a high GPA as well,” Joe Glover,

athletic director, said. “These student athletes have

succeeded in the classroom and on the field. I am excited that

they are being recognized with the best student athletes from

around the conference.”
