NCAA Celebrates Academic Performance of Two SIUE Athletic Teams

2015-05-21 10:28:00 SIUE.edu

The Southern Illinois University Edwardsville women’s tennis and men’s cross country teams have been recognized for top academic performance by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The teams are among 15 Ohio Valley Conference programs receiving honors.

Each year, the NCAA publicly recognizes selected Division I sports teams based on their latest multi-year NCAA Division I Academic Progress Rate (APR).

“We’re extremely pleased and excited two of our teams have been honored,” said Brad Hewitt, director of Intercollegiate Athletics at SIUE. “APR goes hand-in-hand with our graduation success rate. We remain committed; first and foremost, to graduating student-athletes, and having them excel in the classroom. We’re excited for our growth on the field, on the courts, and on the course as our students continue to improve athletically.”

The APR measures eligibility, graduation and retention each semester or quarter and provides a clear picture of the academic performance for each team in each sport. The APR awards two points each term to student-athletes who meet academic eligibility standards and who remain with the institution. A team's APR score is the total points earned by the team at a given time divided by the total points possible, multiplied by 1,000. It includes four years (this year's numbers included the school years of 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13, and 2013-14). High-performing teams receiving public recognition awards posted APR scores ranging from 980 to a perfect 1,000.

SIUE Upward Bound Students Inspired to Shine at Flawless Conference

2015-05-21 09:36:00 SIUE.edu
Austin and Allen

For 16-year-old Krissauna Austin, walking down a runway is one of the last things she would envision herself doing. But following the Flawless Young Ladies Conference, the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s TRIO Upward Bound student strutted down the cat walk, wearing a big smile and exuding self-assurance. 

“My inner self gained a lot of confidence after Gina Walker’s class,” said Austin, a sophomore at Madison Senior High School. “I didn’t feel inhibited.” 

Austin and approximately 40 Upward Bound BEM (Belleville, East St. Louis Charter, Madison) and EC (East St. Louis and Cahokia) high school students participated in the Flawless Young Ladies Conference May 2 at the East St. Louis Higher Education Campus. 

The conference included workshops, a featured speaker and a luncheon. Motivational and self-help speakers encouraged the students to be their best possible selves.

“The conference was very eye opening,” said Ashley Allen, an Upward Bound BEM student and sophomore at Madison. “It taught me that college wasn’t going to be easy; there is a lot of stuff you have to let go of to follow your dreams; and to embrace your inner you.”

Gina Walker of East St. Louis, CEO and founder of Inspired Inc., was one of the workshop presenters. In her class, “Removing the Mask” she had participants look at themselves in the mirror.

“I saw things I didn’t like, and some things I did like,” Austin said. “I didn’t like the dark circles under my eyes. I saw a lost girl because of the obstacles in my life right now.

“I liked my cheeks because they’re big and round. And my skin tone suits me perfectly. I liked that I saw I have a bright future ahead of me.” 

Austin added that she had planned to go to college, but now realizes she will have to work hard to make it a reality. She attended “Women’s Survival Kit for College,” taught by Samara Chapple, of the SIUE East St. Louis Center Director’s Office. 

“I can say I want to go to college as many times as I want,” Austin said, “but I have to go through the various steps to get there. Ms. Chapple said when you hit a roadblock, you have to know how to push through and keep going.”

 Chapple has a master’s in sociology from SIUE and a bachelor’s in sociology from Clayton State University in Georgia. A sample of what she shared in her presentation included:

Other presenters at the conference:

Tawana Watson, Toastmaster International Club, Veteran’s Administration, was the keynote speaker. She spoke about “How I Overcame Depression.” 

“It was easy to connect with the presenters, because they talked about how they struggled,” Allen said. “Ms. Watson has been through a lot and has overcome poverty, too. She said how she did it for her child, and as her child grew up, she grew up into a better person. It let me know that if she did all that, I can overcome, too.” 

Gloria Banks, Upward Bound counselor, spearheaded the Flawless conference. “I thought it was needed to allow girls to focus on issues pertinent to them and network with professional women who could be future mentors or employers.” 

Working with Banks were also Upward Bound staff members: Janell Smart, counselor; and Pam Morton and Kraig, both teachers. 

Upward Bound helps youth prepare for higher education. Participants receive instruction in literature, composition, mathematics, and science on college campuses after school, on Saturdays and during the summer. Upward Bound is committed to developing a program which will excite, motivate and prepare high school students from the program’s target areas. The quality services provided will prepare the students for successful high school completion and entrance into post-secondary programs. It is designed to serve low-income and/or potential first-generation college students.
