Recipients of The Northeast 10 Presidents' Award for Academic Excellence

The Northeast-10 Conference is proud to announce the first-ever recipients of its Presidents' Award for Academic Excellence – an honor awarded to graduating senior student-athletes for their outstanding work in the classroom during their college careers.

The inaugural class of honorees for the Presidents' Award for Academic Excellence includes 226 remarkable student-athletes from the NE10's 14 member institutions and three of its associate members. Adelphi led all schools with 33 honorees, while Bentley finished second with 32.

"We are honored to recognize our inaugural class of recipients for the Presidents' Award for Academic Excellence," said NE10 Commissioner Julie Ruppert. "To sustain this high level of excellence in the classroom throughout their entire academic careers, while participating in team activities, is nothing short of remarkable. This group embodies the true meaning of the term 'student-athlete'."

To be eligible for the Presidents' Award for Academic Excellence, a senior student-athlete must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be a graduating NE10 student-athlete.

  • Must attain the Latin honor of Magna Cum Laude or better.

  • Must have participated in at least two seasons of NE10 competition and is a current student-athlete at the time of graduation.*

*The NE10 did not have a formal season of competition in the fall or winter of 2020-21 and therefore counted each season toward the minimum for each affected student-athlete.

Each award recipient will receive a commemorative NE10 medallion (pictured above) for their academic achievements.

"These student-athletes have mastered the skills of multi-taking, organization and preparation, as it relates to both their responsibilities in an academic and athletic setting" said Ruppert. "Having the ability to manage time, set goals and see them through until accomplished is what has made and will continue to make NE10 student-athletes successful following graduation."

The NCAA's Presidents' Award for Academic Excellence honors institutions who achieve an academic success rate (ASR) of 90-percent or higher. This past December, the NE10 had seven of its institutions earn this distinction – remarkably half of the league's entire membership!
