INTRODUCING THE PUMA SCHOLAR-ATHLETE PROGRAM

You’re a great Student AND a great Athlete!

The Puma Scholar-Athlete Program has been designed to recognize all Puma student-athletes who excel in their academics while involved in their sport. Student-athletes who, after a minimum of two full time semesters, achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or higher will be designated as Puma Scholar-Athletes.

Every student-athlete who joins the Puma family has an incredible amount of potential for intellectual and personal growth, just as they do athletically. While we challenge our student-athletes to maximize their potential in ALL areas, we ardently strive to provide a framework of support that enables student-athletes to excel in the classroom. Our collaborative efforts build skills and confidence, shape character, and enhance opportunities for success.

PV athletics firmly believes that athletics and academics complement each other. There is a proven link between athletic participation and positive academic performance. Utilizing the same traits and characteristics applied to achievement in their sport, these scholar-athletes have built their academic excellence during the 2013-2014 academic year.

While current success is of great value, success as a scholar-athlete at PV also prepares students to pursue their athletic and academic goals at the four-year college level. We look forward to seeing all of our student-athletes work to become scholar-athletes during their tenure with PVCC Athletics as well as continue their success once Puma alums.
