126 Spartans Up For National Student-Athlete Award

More than one-fourth of San Jose State University's student-athlete population are among thousands nationwide who will be honored on National Student-Athlete Day, Friday April 6, by the National Consortium for Academics and Sports.

            These 126 Spartans qualified for this award based on earning a 3.00 or higher cumulative grade-point average and participated in community service events during the 2011-12 academic year.

            Now in its 25th year, the National Consortium for Academics and Sports manages the awards program. An organizational goal is to promote the positive virtues of sports and student-athletes as a whole, and the positive affect both have on society.
