Chi Alpha Sigma is the first national scholar-athlete society to honor those collegiate student-athletes who have excelled in both the classroom and in athletic competition. Chi Alpha Sigma recognizes varsity athletes who have maintained a 3.4 or higher cumulative GPA throughout their junior and/or senior years.
The purpose of the organization is to encourage and reward high academic scholarship of college athletes at four-year accredited colleges and universities. To recognize outstanding academic achievement by intercollegiate varsity letter winners. To encourage good citizenship, moral character, and friendship among the high academic achievers in college athletics. To recognize and honor the individual athlete, his/her team, sport, athletic department, and college or university. To mentor and to provide leadership to other athletes.
The Central Christian College chapter of Chi Alpha Sigma began in the 2008-2009 school year, under the sponsorship of Dr. Leonard Favara Jr. Each year, during the Athletic Banquet, new inductees are announced and added to the roll. Honorees are presented with honor tassels and a medal at commencement.
