Camden High School graduates and Francis Marion University student-athletes Kayla Crim and Brooke Dixon were recently named to the 25th annual Peach Belt Conference Presidential Honor Roll.
The PBC announced that a record 1,630 student-athletes have been named to the list.
Crim, a rising sophomore, is a member of the Patriots’ women’s track and field squad, while Dixon played for the Patriots’ women’s basketball team as a freshman last winter.
Crim was a Presidential Scholar, for those student-athletes with a 3.0 - 3.24 Grade Point Average. Dixon was a Bronze Scholar honor, presented to student-athletes with a GPA between 3.25 and 3.49.
The Presidential Honor Roll recognizes all student-athletes at PBC institutions who had a grade point average of 3.00 or higher, based on a 4.00 scale, for the 2015-16 academic year. The honor roll is divided into four groups: Presidential Scholars (GPA of 3.00 to 3.24), Bronze Scholars (3.25 to 3.49), Silver Scholars (3.50 to 3.74), and Gold Scholars (3.75 to 4.00).
“This recognition indicates that we are truly following the role model of the ‘student-athlete’,” said FMU director of athletics Murray Hartzler. “It shows that with hard work and time management, student-athletes can have a balanced life and succeed in the classroom and on the playing field simultaneously. These honors are also a pat-on-the-back of thanks to our faculty, administration, and support staff that work hand-in-hand with our student-athletes.”
