RIC Athletics Award Established in Honor of Prof. Lloyd Matsumoto and His Wife
The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation has established an award in the name of Professor of Biology Lloyd Matsumoto and his wife Terri that will honor a male and female student-athlete who, over the course of their intercollegiate and academic undergraduate career, achieves the highest cumulative GPA. The award will be presented annually and a recognition plaque will honor both the Matsumotos and the honorees in perpetuity. The recognition plaque will be installed in the Student-Athlete Success Center some time this summer. The Matsumotos are widely known for their incredible support of campus initiatives, especially those engaging students. They have been very strong supporters of student-athletes over the past few years, especially as it relates to supporting their academic success and the Student Success Center. An announcement of the award was recently made at the department’s annual Senior Recognition Dinner.
