Junior Named Scholar-Athlete-of-the-Year

 

"I love learning and I love running," said UD's 2013-14 Scholar-Athlete-of-the-Year Aaron French, BS '15, a member of the cross country team. Each year, the UD Athletics Department bestows this honor upon the letter-winning varsity student-athlete with the highest cumulative GPA.

French, who has now received the award for two consecutive years, is a chemistry major with an applied physics concentration. A three-year letter winner who has also competed on UD's men's track and field team, he is a two-time designee to both the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) Academic Honor Roll and the United States Collegiate Athletic Association's National All-Academic Team.

This summer, French will spend six weeks at San Jose State University taking nuclear chemistry courses as part of a program funded by the U.S. Department of Energy. He also received a Department of Energy scholarship for his senior year at UD.

"Doing well is about the joy I get from running and the joy I find in learning," said French. "This is the real reward of being a student-athlete."
