Alexis Mercer was named a Silver Scholar by the Peach Belt Conference, one of 89 Armstrong Atlantic State University athletes to be named to the PBC presidential honor roll.
Student-athletes must maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher (on a 4.0 scale) for the entire 2013-14 academic year to be honored.
The number is the second-highest total of honor roll honorees in Armstrong history, trailing only last year’s 91 total honorees.
Mercer, a junior shortstop on the AASU softball team and South Effingham High grad, set a conference single-season home run record with 26.
For the sixth straight year, the honor roll has been divided into four groups: Presidential Scholars, Bronze Scholars, Silver Scholars and Gold Scholars. All student-athletes with a GPA of 3.00 to 3.24 are Presidential Scholars, while Bronze Scholars are 3.25 to 3.49; Silver 3.50 to 3.74 and the Gold scholars are those with a 3.75 to 4.00 GPA.
