Finalists Announced For The Third Annual Blue & Golden Globes

EMORY, Va. – The Emory & Henry College Department of Athletics and Student-Athlete Advisory Committee will host the third annual Blue & Golden Globes Awards Show on Monday, April 25. The event will be held in the main stage theatre of the Woodrow W. McGlothlin Center for the Arts at 7:00 p.m. Red carpet interviews and desserts will begin in the lobby at 6:00 p.m.

The awards show is an event organized and run by the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee to celebrate the accomplishments of the College's student-athletes during the 2015-16 academic year. E&H will honor student-athletes who excelled on the field on play, in the classroom, and in the weight room. In addition, student-athletes will receive department-wide awards which were voted on by SAAC members, coaches, and students who have attended a certain number of athletic events. This year, over 130 people voted for these awards.

The hosts for this year's Blue & Golden Globes are football players, Kevin Saxton and Tyree Ward. While the red carpet interviews are hosted by women's soccer player Baylee Dozark, men's soccer player Zach Quest, and men's basketball player Trevor Gilliam. Pictures and recaps of the show will be posted on Emory & Henry social media under #Globes2k16.
