Menlo College President Kelly Reflects on Athletics in Higher EdAugust 13, 2012

Menlo College President James J. Kelly has made his first appearance as a contributor to Huff Post College (The Huffington Post college blog.)

In a recent post titled, In the Olympic Spirit: The Good Side of Athletics in Higher Education, President Kelly acknowledges the complimentary role of athletics in helping to develop exceptional leaders.

“On our small campus we offer fourteen men's, women's and coed sports, and year after year our business student-athletes perform at a high level academically; around 50% of them are on the Dean's list in any given semester,” President Kelly wrote.

With our incoming student-athletes beginning their training for the 2012-13 athletics season, President Kelly thought it is a fitting time to honor the athletes, coaches, and staff who work so hard to provide us with a great sports program.
