Student-athletes win national academic awards for 2021-22

Braves Athletics logoEighteen student-athletes recently earned All-Academic Team honors from the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) for their 2021-22 overall GPAs.

The NJCAA 2021-22 All-Academic Teams salute student-athletes across the country for their dedication in the classroom. To qualify, student-athletes must have completed at least 24 credit hours during the 2021-22 school year and two full-time semesters overall.

“It is exciting to have 18 student-athletes earn a spot on this list,” said Arnie Chavera, BHC athletic director.

“This recognition by the NJCAA is a distinct honor that each of the students should be very proud of. I certainly know that their coaches are proud of them,” he said.
