Scholar Athletes/Teams

The Scholar Athlete Award is the highest student achievement honor awarded annually by the CCCAA. The winners, along with the rest of the annual honor roll, are selected by the CCCAA Awards Committee from nominations made by community colleges throughout California.

Candidates for the Scholar Athlete Award must carry a minimum GPA of 3.5 and must also show outstanding leadership as an athlete, student, or in other college and community activities, as well as have participated in two seasons of sport at a California community college.

The Scholar Team Award is the highest academic team achievement given annually by the CCCAA. All team members must have excelled academically with a total GPA of 3.0 or higher. The team should have demonstrated better than average accomplishments in intercollegiate athletic competition.

The California Community College Athletic Association's Award Committee is proud to announce Evan-Thomas May of Long Beach City College, and Danielle Scelsi, as their selections to receive the men and women’s 2016 Scholar-Athlete Awards. The selection was difficult as many excellent candidates were nominated by their conferences. Mr. May and Ms. Scelsi with all of our Honor Roll awardees can be proud of their achievements. Each of these Scholar Athlete award winners excelled academically, athletically, and in citizenship and represent the positive outcomes of dedication, hard-work and service. Congratulations to our 2016 award winners!
