Clemson?s Amirkhanian Honored With ACC?s Weaver-James-Corrigan Scholarship

CLEMSON, S.C. – Former Clemson men’s soccer player Ara Amirkhanian has been selected as one of 45 ACC student athletes to receive the prestigious Weaver-James-Corrigan Scholarship, annually awarded to those who wish to pursue a graduate degree following an undergraduate education and career.

Amirkhanian is honored for his excellence in the classroom, where he graduated in December 2014 with a cumulative GPA over 3.5 and a degree in Health Sciences,  and on the field, where he was a four year varsity starter and scored 14 goals. Amirkhanian’s exemplary conduct within the community was also taken into account.

Just this past November, Amirkhanian scored the winning goal in Clemson’s 2-1 double-overtime victory over Louisville in the ACC Tournament championship match. His goal came in the 104th minute and secured Clemson’s first ACC championship since 2001. He was named to the 2014 ACC All-Tournament team and he was a member of the Capital One Academic All-District Team and the All-ACC Academic Team in 2013 and 2014.  

Amirkhanian, a Clemson native and lifelong Tiger fan, plans to attend medical school.
