Just shy of 50 student athletes celebrated their graduation from MSJC on Thursday night with many headed on their way to four year universities on scholarship.gradstory.jpg

The Student Athlete Graduation Celebration has become a tradition at MSJC and the Athletic and PE staff would like to congratulate the students for their many accomplishments.  Currently over 30 student athletes have received scholarships for the upcoming school year with 15 to 20 more expected before the fall semester begins.

At least one athlete in 10 of the 11 sports MSJC offers has been offered a scholarship for the fall of 2012.  These students will fan out across the country to places like; Kansas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Missouri, and of course California to represent MSJC in the coming years.  "We are always proud of our students when they earn a scholarship or get accepted to a university," said Dean of Athletics and head men's basketball coach Patrick Springer.  "It's the highest priority for us to help these young people reach their goals and give them an opportunity to move forward in their education".  "These students have worked very hard to earn their future opportunities and we wish them the best of luck".
