3 Swimmers Inducted into the Scholar Athlete Society!

May 26, 2009

LEWISTON, Maine — The Bates Scholar-Athlete Society was created in 2005 to underscore the college's commitment to the scholar-athlete ideal. The society includes seniors, nominated by their coaches, who have compiled a 3.5 grade point average or received a special nomination from faculty and staff for distinguished academic achievement in their junior and senior years. To be eligible for induction, student-athletes must participate in a varsity sport for at least three years. 

Investigative journalist and ESPN correspondent Tom Farrey will deliver the keynote address at the fourth annual Bates College Scholar-Athlete 
Society ceremony and be inducted as an honorary member. The ceremony takes place in Alumni Gymnasium on Saturday, May 30, from 5:30 to 7 p.m.  

I am extremely proud to see Bailey 
Johnson, Hope Fleming, and Mark 
Andrews represent the swimming and diving team at this event.  They demonstrate the pinnacle of being a student-athlete...  in both the toughest swimming conference and one of the most selective and challenging academic institutions in the country.  Congrats! Simply amazing.
