GHSA Announces 2014 Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Winners

Georgia Electric Membership Corporation (Georgia EMC) is proud to sponsor the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award and today announces the 48 GHSA-member high schools that will receive the 2014 award. The award honors schools that demonstrated exemplary sportsmanship during the 2013-2014 school year.

"The GHSA congratulates these member schools on their selection as region sportsmanship award winners,” says Gary Phillips, GHSA Executive Director. “We thank the GEMC for their support of our schools and efforts to raise the emphasis on sportsmanship in all competitions.”

Since 2006, the GHSA and Georgia’s EMCs have sponsored the Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award, which reinforces the GHSA philosophy: “Students, athletes, coaches, spectators and all others associated with high school activities programs should adhere to the fundamental values of respect, fairness, honesty and responsibility.” Schools around the state are honored for exhibiting exceptional sportsmanship during competitive events.

Student athletes, fellow students, school staff, parents and event spectators are recognized for the sportsmanship they display. The award is not only a school honor, but a community honor as well. The GHSA region secretaries select winners based upon the sportsmanship demonstrated throughout the school year.

Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Awards are presented annually to the GHSA-member high schools in the 48 regions from the six classifications by representatives from the EMCs during fall athletic events and school assemblies.  Winners of the 2014 Georgia EMC Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award are:
