The Shoreline Community College Athletic Department announced their Fall 2010 Academic Awards today, with 58 student-athletes having a 3.00 GPA or better, 20 of those making a 3.50 GPA or better, and one Dolphin Club winne, who has a perfect 4.00 for the fall quarter.
Athletic Director Doug Palmer is happy with the results: “In the fall of 2009 we had 59 student-athletes with a 3.00 or better, so we are staying very consistent in our academic pursuits. Even with 3 new head coaches this year, the main focus of our department, to produce good students, has been maintained. We know that 99% of our student-athletes will not turn professional in their sport careers, so we want to make sure they pursue their academics at SCC, and hopefully are successful enough in the classroom to transfer to a four year institution for further social and academic development or finish with a certificate or associate degree that will lead them to a job or career in a field of their choice”.
Blair Stone, a 50+ year old student at SCC, who plays on the women’s tennis team, led the way for the academic clubs, with a perfect 4.00 GPA. The academic clubs consist of the “Green” Club (3.00 – 3.49 GPA), the “Gold” Club (3.50 – 3.99 GPA) and the “Dolphin” Club, (4.00 GPA).
