IU Southeast KIAC Scholar
Thirty-three IU Southeast student athletes were named
Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Scholar
Athletes for 2015.
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.”
