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.
