In fact, the LHSAA has renewed its partnership with ExxonMobil again this year to honor senior athletes at our member schools in our All-Academic program.
ISC, a leading supplier of instrumentation and electrical services to industry through the Gulf South, has also teamed up with us and Exxon Mobil to become our presenting sponsor for this year’s program.
The LHSAA ExxonMobil All-Academic Program recognizes senior student-athletes who have achieved the necessary grade point average (GPA) requirements, which is having kept a four-year, cumulative 3.5 GPA or higher.
These students are automatically noted as members of the Academic All-State team and are recognized on our website at www.lhsaa.org.
The highest academically-achieving student-athletes in their respective sports are named to the All-Academic Composite Scholar Team, and the next tier of qualifying student-athletes is named to the All-Academic Class/Division Team.
The LHSAA ExxonMobil All-Academic Composite Scholar Program recognizes student-athletes that are composite recipients in all 27 LHSAA sanctioned sports.
Specifically, these are seniors who are slated to graduate at the end of the school year who have maintained perfect 4.0 or above GPAs for their entire high school careers.
For a student-athlete to be eligible for the All-Academic Composite Scholar Team, member school principals must submit to the LHSAA an official six-semester transcript for each student qualifying. This is not required for Class/Division Team members. Principals may access the LHSAA website to create recognition certificates for all Class/Division Team student-athletes.
Because high school sports are an extension of our student-athletes’ total educational experience, we feel that honoring those girls and boys for their achievements in the classroom is essential to our mission of going ‘beyond the game.’
For their efforts, students who receive all-academic composite scholar honors receive framed certificates at their respective sports’ state championships as they truly exemplify the phrase student-athlete.
