Felician Claims 10 Arthur Ashe Sports Scholars

RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The periodical Diverse Issues In Higher Education has selected 10 Felician College student-athletes as 2012 Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholars. The award winners come from the sports of men’s and women’s soccer, women’s volleyball and women’s basketball, and were announced in the May 24 issue of the magazine.

Diverse Issues established the Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholars Program, named for the late tennis star, in 1992 to honor outstanding undergraduate students of color. Each winner must be a non-freshman who competes in an intercollegiate sport, maintains a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.20, and is active on his/her campus or in the community.

The Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholars are named annually, and Felician’s 2012 honorees are listed below. The on-campus coordinator is Dr. Alfredo Castro, associate professor of chemistry and faculty athletics representative to the NCAA. This marks Felician’s 10th year of participation in the program.
