(Franklin, GA) — For the 17th consecutive year, Georgia Electric Membership Cooperatives including Carroll EMC announced their continued sponsorship of the Georgia High School Association, including serving as the official energy provider of the GHSA.

The athletic department of Heard High School was selected from Region 5-AA to receive the Georgia Electric Membership Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award for the 2015-16 school year.

As leaders in their communities, Georgia’s EMC are proud to continue their support of schools and local communities through sponsorship to ensure Georgia’s student athletes build character through competition and help them become leaders of tomorrow.

The sponsorship ensures students quality venues, products and services throughout the championship experiences and includes a partnership with Georgia Public Broadcasting to underwrite high school athletics television and online coverage, as well as live broadcasts of both football and basketball state championships.

As part of the continuing support of GHSA, Georgia’s EMC’s and Carroll EMC are also presenting sponsors of the Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award, presented annually to the winning school and fan base in each region of the state for demonstrating the highest level of sportsmanship.

A total of 48 schools received this award last year. These awards are selected by the region secretaries and presented during pre-game ceremonies at local football or basketball games.

This year’s award was presented by Carroll EMC employees Greg Rogers and Renae Taylor to HHS principal Brent Tisdale, Assistant Principal Maggie Williams, and Athletic Director Shane Lasseter prior to last week’s football game versus Temple.
