(Franklin, GA) — Diverse Power, Carroll EMC, and 28 other participating Georgia electric membership cooperatives congratulated Heard County High School on October 13 at Staples Stadium for winning the 2016-2017 Georgia High School Association Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award.

This awards program honors schools that exhibit exemplary sportsmanship during competitive events and is sponsored by Georgia’s Electric Membership Corporations.

Introduced in 2006, the Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award program reinforces GHSA’s philosophy which states: “Student athletes, coaches, spectators, and all others associated with high school activity programs should adhere to the fundamental values of respect, fairness, honesty and responsibility.”

Only one school in each division within each region is chosen to receive this annual award.

The GHSA takes into consideration all aspects of sportsmanship during events—student athletes on the field as well as fellow students, school staff, parents and game spectators, making the award a tribute to the entire community.

The employees of Diverse Power and Carroll EMC, some of whom have family members who attend the High School and its events, join us in congratulating you on receiving this prestigious award. It speaks well of the entire community.
