The College of William and Mary's Athletics Department hosted the seventh annual Provost Award reception March 18 to honor an exceptional group of 75 student-athletes in Kaplan Arena.

"The Provost Award was created by our student-athletes as a way to honor one of the core tenets of our department's mission," stated Tribe Athletics Director Terry Driscoll. "The event is a celebration of an extraordinary group of young people who exemplify the 'true student-athlete' concept. The number of student-athletes who have earned the distinction this year is truly remarkable."

A record number of Tribe student-athletes were honored at the event, as 19 sports (including the cheer squad) were recognized. The Provost Award is earned based on a cumulative grade point average, with upperclassmen needing a 3.50 GPA, or above, in their college career and freshmen needing a 3.75 GPA through their first semester.

The event was sponsored by the Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) and was hosted by the College's Provost, Michael Halleran. This is the seventh year that the Provost Award had been presented. The program was initiated by the SAAC, which is a group of student representatives from each of W&M's 23 intercollegiate teams.
