Three Pacific Union College varsity athletes have been named to the 2012 Daktronics NAIA Division II Scholar-Athletes List, two of which are receiving the honor for the second time. Both Carla Bartlett and Michael Giang were listed for the second year, with first time honors going to Josh Jewett.

Carla Bartlett, a guard on the Pioneers women’s varsity basketball team, is a senior Exercise Science major.

New to the list is Josh Jewett, from Scottsdale, Ariz. Jewett was named First Team All Conference player for the men’s varsity basketball team and was also named a Cal Pac Player of the Week in December. He will graduate this June with degrees in Intercultural Communication and Spanish.

In order to be a recipient of the Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete award, the athlete must be a junior or senior above in academic standing, have attended the nominating institution a minimum of one full year, and have a minimum grade point average of 3.5 at the time of nomination.
