GREENSBORO, N.C. - Forty-one Atlantic Coast Conference scholar-athletes who were named recipients of postgraduate scholarships in February were honored at a luncheon on Wednesday, April 16. The annual event was presented by the Nat Greene Kiwanis Club and held at the Koury Convention Center.
The Weaver-James-Corrigan and Jim and Pat Thacker scholarships are given to selected student-athletes who intend to pursue a graduate-level degree following graduation. Each recipient will receive $5,000 to use towards his or her graduate education. Student-athletes receiving the award have performed with distinction in both the classroom and in their respective sports, while demonstrating exemplary conduct in the community.
In addition to those receiving scholarship funds, six student-athletes will receive Weaver-James-Corrigan Honorary Awards. These students will be recognized for their outstanding performance in both athletic competition and the classroom throughout their collegiate careers and intend to compete at the Olympic or professional level.
