Bowie State Places Three on CIAA Commissioner's All-Academic Team


HAMPTON, Va. - The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association is pleased to recognize twenty student-athletes from its member institutions as the 2013 CIAA Commissioner's All-Academic Team. The group is comprised of student-athletes who have completed at least one academic year at a member intuition, made significant contributions to their respective sport and have achieved a grade-point-average of 3.2 or better.

“Athletics in the CIAA provides a unique opportunity for student-athletes to compete and receive a quality education. It is important to understand that there is a balance that is expected from DII student-athletes, i.e., to graduate while cultivating a variety of skills to prepare for life time experiences and opportunities,” said CIAA Commissioner Jacqie Carpenter.

The CIAA Female and Male Scholar-Athletes of the Year are Winston-Salem State's Ebone Evans and Khendra Reid.

Evans, a participant in WSSU's women's track & field program, garnered a 3.96 grade-point-average majoring in Biology. The junior hurdler from Durham, NC was a standout on the track for the Lady Rams and a model citizen off the track. She donated countless hours to local elementary schools for tutoring, science fairs and youth programming. The WSSU 2012 & 2013 Female Student-Athlete of the Year recipient has also received several other academic awards since her freshman year.

Reid, a Ram football defensive standout, earned male Scholar-Athlete of the Year honors with a 3.66 grade-point-average as a Computer Science major. A linebacker for the Division II National Runner-up, Reid was named Second Team All-CIAA earlier this academic year. The Pikeville, NC native has been a Chancellor's Full Scholarship Recipient from 2010-13 and a member of the CIAA All-Academic Team since 2010. He has been a staple in the area of church and elementary school community service.

“The CIAA All-Academic team represents student-athletes who demonstrate a commitment to achievement not only in athletics but academic excellence in the classroom,” Carpenter added. “It is an honor to recognize such a prestigious group of student-athletes in the CIAA who will serve as future leaders in their communities.”

The Scholar-Athletes of the Year are nominated by their respective institutions and voted upon by the CIAA Executive Committee. The All-Academic Team is voted upon by the CIAA Sports Information Directors Association.
