The University of Pittsburgh Athletic Department hosted its annual Scholar-Athlete Awards Breakfast to honor student-athletes for their outstanding academic achievements during the 2013 spring and fall semesters on February 25. The event honors those Pitt student-athletes who achieved a 3.0 grade-point average or better during the last two semesters.
Among the awardees were 32 CGS students, including three who achieved the highest honor, a 4.0 GPA award: Zenel Demhasaj, Jarred Holley, and Lamar Patterson.
Congratulations to all of our Scholar-Athletes:
