6th Annual Scholar-Athlete Luncheon

Congratulations to our record 541 Saint Louis Public Schools scholar-athletes, who we celebrated at a special luncheon on April 12, 2017, at Saint Louis University. In order to receive this recognition, students must maintain a 3.25 grade point average while competing in sports. Highlights of this year's event included a special videotaped message from St. Louis native Cedric the Entertainer and a moving keynote address from SLPS Network Superintendent Ian Roberts. Dr. Roberts has extensive experience as an educator and was a professional track and field athlete. He competed in numerous World Championships and Pan American Games and in the 2000 Olympic games in Sydney, Australia.
