The Fort Worth ISD proudly recognizes more than 70 student-athletes as 2020-2021 Scholar Athletes.
Because of the COVID-19 protocols, the District was unable to publicly recognize the students at its last Board of Education meeting in May as it has previously done. However, the District will recognize this year’s honorees and achievements on the FWISD website, www.fwisd.org.
Originally called the Academic Athlete Award, the Scholar Athlete recognition was originated in 1984 by former Board of Education member Dr. T.A. Sims. Dr. Sims saw a need to recognize outstanding athletes for their work in the classroom as well as on the playing field.
In its 37th year, the Scholar-Athlete program recognizes one male and one female student athlete from each FWISD middle and high school. Students are chosen on the basis of their grade point average and their athletic achievement, with an emphasis on the GPA.
