International student Perez Agaba of Uganda, a key member of IUPUI’s men’s soccer team, is one of 10 finalists for the 2011 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award, given each year to honor notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition.

Agaba (featured in the Winter 2009 issue of IUPUI Magazine) is a biomedical engineering major and was named the Summit League’s Scholar Athlete of the Year for the 2010-11 school year.

CLASS is an acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School and encourages students to use their status in athletics to make a positive impact in their communities.
