Palmer Receives National Academic Award

Raleigh, N.C. - Former NC State wide receiver Tobais Palmer was named a recipient for the 2013 National Academic Momentum Award.

Tobais Palmer finished his career with the Pack with a strong 2012 season, and earned his degree in sport management in December.

The Scholar Baller program, in conjunction with the National Consortium for Academics and Sports (NCAS), announced the recipients of the Academic Momentum Award. Eighty-nine nominations were received from 30 different colleges and universities across the country.

The nominations were divided into three teams based on the level of academic improvement and the impact of that academic momentum on each nominee and his or her peers.

A total of 28 male and female award recipients from the NCAS schools were chosen for team one, 17 recipients were chosen for team two and 19 recipients for the third team.

This year's nominations included stories of overcoming past academic failures; transferring schools in the middle of a season; leaving his or her hometown and still exemplifying leadership while inspiring peers and teammates to do the same; overcoming the adversity of being injured and channeling their energy into academics; being an international student who had to persevere through hardships both academically and culturally; and participating in local community service initiatives.
