Hickory lists 2013 scholar-athlete award winners


Herald Staff Writer

HERMITAGE — Hickory High Athletic Director Barb Dzuricsko recently announced that a total of 213 students (grades 9-12) earned Don McKay Scholar-Athlete awards.

To be eligible, students must maintain an A (93 percent or higher) grade-point-average through the academic year’s third 9-week grading period and compete in a PIAA-sponsored sport.

A total of 375 students competed in athletics this past year, Dzuricsko noted, meaning almost 57 percent qualified for the McKay Scholar-Athlete Award. Since the award’s inception, this is the highest total number of students to earn the honors, she reported.

Dzuricsko said students earning the awards can obtain them at her office, 8 a.m.-2 p.m., Monday-Thursday, the next 2 weeks.
