A total of 158 institutions and a record number of student-athletes (7,074) are being recognized for the 2013-14 Academic Achievement Awards. For the second straight year, the Pennsylvania State Athletic Association had 679 student-athletes honored, a record-high for the program, followed by the Great Lakes Valley Conference (GLVC) with 653 student-athletes being recognized and the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) with 632 student-athletes being acknowledged with this award.
