PHILADELPHIA, PA-- A total of 81 student-athletes from The George Washington University have made the Atlantic 10 Commissioner's Honor Roll for the Spring 2009 semester, as announced by A-10 Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade Thursday. The A-10 Commissioner's Honor Roll recognizes its student-athletes who have achieved a 3.5 grade-point-average or higher.
"We are proud of the priority that our student-athletes place upon their academic responsibilities and the effort they put forth to succeed at such a high level in that area," said Karen Ercole, GW's Director of Academic Support Services. "We appreciate that the A-10 recognizes those achievements and congratulate our student-athletes, as well as those at the other A-10 schools, for their excellence in the classroom."
