NORFOLK, Va., June 2, 2020—North Carolina A&T State has been awarded the 2019-20 Academic Performance Rate (APR) award, the conference office has announced.
“The ultimate goal is to develop and graduate our student-athletes. Congratulations to North Carolina A&T State University, including Chancellor Dr. Harold L. Martin, Sr., Director of Athletics Earl M. Hilton III and the administrators, coaches, student-athletes and support staff for winning the Academic Performance Rate award,” said MEAC Commissioner Dr. Dennis E. Thomas.
North Carolina A&T State was honored academically for the second straight year, posting the MEAC’s highest academic performance rate (APR) over the past four academic years. For its efforts, the NCA&T Department of Athletics will receive a $25,000 check from the conference.
The MEAC will not name Talmadge Layman Hill or Mary McLeod Bethune All-Sports Award winners for 2019-20 due to the suspension of winter championships and spring sports because of the coronavirus pandemic.
