2012 Ferrum College President's Cup


Ferrum, Va. (April 10, 2012) – Baseball player Paul Jaglowski is the recipient of the 2012 President’s Cup Award, given to an individual who exhibits excellence in academics, athletics, campus and community leadership, and character.  Candidates must have a minimum grade point average of 3.2 and be a senior.

Jaglowski will earn his degree from Ferrum in May, with a major in International Studies and a minor in Spanish.  He has made the Dean’s List every semester, and holds membership in the Boone Honors Program, as well as Alpha Chi, Alpha Mu Gamma, and Pi Sigma Alpha honor societies. 

Paul spent Fall 2011 at American University participating in the Washington Semester Program in International Environment and Development. He founded an on-campus organization at American University called Stand By Somalia.  The organization drew attention to the famine in Africa and raised nearly $1000 in relief funds.  Because of his efforts, Paul was invited to attend a meeting at the White House as the representative of college students in America.

Jaglowski taught Economics and English to upper-level students in Hinche, Haiti from 2006-2010, and acted as liaison between potential donors in the U.S. and an orphanage in Haiti.  Paul also assisted senior staff at meetings on Capitol Hill.

Jaglowski’s athletic accomplishments include having started in every game since he arrived at Ferrum, being a three-time All-Conference selection, and team captain the past two years.  Jaglowski earned USA South Player of the Week honors in early April after batting .619 over a stretch of five games.
