Motlow Athletes Honored By NJCAA

Four Motlow College student-athletes were recently named as 2012 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Exemplary Academic Achievement Honorees.
Baseball players Shaw Dickerson from Dyersburg, Zach White from Lawrenceburg, and Jacob Honea from Tullahoma were joined by softball player Morgan Hemmingsen from Woodlawn.
The NJCAA awards student-athletes each year for academic achievement. The Exemplary Academic Achievement award goes to student-athletes with a grade-point average between 3.60 – 3.79 based on a 4.00 scale.
Over 1,680 NJCAA student-athletes met the requirements for individual academic honors.
Nearly 60,000 student-athletes competed in the NJCAA for the 2011-2012 academic year on over 3,500 teams in 28 different sports.
The 2011-2012 season marks the 29th year the NJCAA has recognized the success of its student-athletes in the classroom. With minimal changes, the NJCAA academic awards program has been in place since 1983.
