This I like to see!

It always warms my heart when I see college athletes doing so well in school. You hear a lot about them doing poorly, but not so much when they do well.

UGA had several athletes named to the Academic Honor Roll for 2006-2007. In total there were 203 student athletes honored with 56 of them being freshmen. To be eligible for this award.....

To be recognized, a student-athlete must 1) have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution; 2) be on scholarship or a letterwinner; 3) have completed 24 semester hours of non-remedial credit at the nominating institution; and 4) have been a member of the varsity team for the sport's entire NCAA Championship segment.

I'm very proud that UGA had so many athletes receive this award. It says a lot about the importance placed on academics at the university.
