Westover wins EMC Sportsmanship Award

Westover Sportsmanship

Mitchell EMC and 29 other participating Georgia electric membership cooperatives congratulate Westover High School on winning the Georgia High School Association Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award. This awards program honors schools that exhibit exemplary sportsmanship during competitive events and sponsored by Georgia's Electric Membership Cooperatives. 

Introduced in 2006, the Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award Program reinforces GHSA's philosophy which states: “Students 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 region within each classification is chosen to receive this annual award. The GHSA take 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 Mitchell EMC, many of whom have family members who attend Westover High School and its events, join us in congratulation you on receiving this prestigious award. It speaks well of the entire community.
