Alcorn State Universitywins two Halbrook Awards during the MACU Conference (329 hits)

The hard work of Alcorn State University's scholar student-athletes was recently recognized during an event that honors educational excellence.

Alcorn won The David M. Halbrook (traveling) Trophy and The John C. and Ernestine McCall Halbrook Achievement Award during the Mississippi Association of Colleges and Universities' (MACU) Annual Conference hosted by Tougaloo College Wednesday, Sept. 30 and Thursday, Oct. 1 in Jackson, Mississippi.

The David M. Halbrook Trophy is presented to the institutional executive officers of the winning colleges and universities with the highest percentage of graduating student-athletes. The John C. and Ernestine McCall Halbrook Achievement Award is a cash award presented to the single college or university that has shown the greatest increase over the previous year in the percentage of athletes graduating.

Interim President, Dr. Donzell Lee praised the commitment to excellence displayed by Alcorn’s student-athletes.

"The faithful faculty and staff have done an amazing job at preparing our student-athletes to not only succeed in their respected sports but also to dominate in the classroom," said Lee. "These awards are indicative of the dedication that both the faculty and the student-athlete puts in on a regular basis. We are proud of their efforts."

The purpose of the Mississippi Association of Colleges and Universities (MAC) is to promote goodwill among colleges and universities, to stimulate academic and professional cooperation among the membership, to consider common problems, and to pursue those matters of common interest to the membership.
