Warwick, RI – The Community College of Rhode Island’s Athletic Department named 45 student-athletes to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll for the Spring 2020 semester, 34 of whom also qualified for the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region XXI Honor Roll.

To qualify for the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.0 GPA while attending college full-time during the current semester. The NJCAA Region XXI Honor Roll is reserved for those who earn a 3.20 GPA or higher in the current semester.

“I hope that by honoring these student-athletes, it also inspires them to keep achieving at this high level,” said Director of Athletics Kevin Salisbury. “Like all students, our student-athletes were hit by ‘the perfect storm’ with COVID-19, unemployment, sports cancelations, and civil unrest. For them to weather that storm and complete the semester with academic success is certainly worth honoring.

“Our Student-Athlete Academic Success Program and its staff, organized by Compliance Officer Beverly Wiley, reiterates the importance of academics. While representing CCRI on the field or court is important, in the end it’s about how successful they are in the classroom, which sets them up for life. If they are successful in the classroom, they will definitely be successful on the field.”
