Posted On: Wednesday, June 23, 2021

2021 CCSD Positive Athlete Georgia Regional Award Winners 6 23 21

Ten Cherokee County School District student athletes have been honored by Positive Athlete Georgia!

The students have been honored with 2021 Positive Athlete Georgia Regional Awards by Positive Athlete Georgia, a subsidiary of Celebrate Positive LLC, which promotes the benefits of positivity to young athletes around the world.  Hines Ward, a former Forest Park High School, University of Georgia and Pittsburgh Steelers football star, formed Positive Athlete with local businessman Scott Pederson.

More than 3,000 high school students are nominated annually by coaches, principals, athletic directors, teachers and parents.  Awards are presented for each sport at the regional level, with region winners advancing to state-level competition.

In addition to demonstrating excellence in their sport, Positive Athletes must show characteristics such as an optimistic attitude, teammate encouragement, servant leadership, heart for others, ability to admit imperfections, giving 100 percent all the time, and realizing the team as more important than the individual.

“We’re proud of our student athletes for how well they compete, but we’re most proud when they show outstanding character.  These students scored both goals to achieve this meaningful honor,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower said.  “Congratulations to them and their families and to the coaches who guide them to be the most positive athletes they can be.”
