From Special Reports
Coweta-Fayette EMC (CFEMC) is proud to be among Georgia’s Electric Membership Cooperatives who help shape the future of the local community by sponsoring the Georgia High School Association (GHSA) Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award, which honors GHSA member schools throughout the state that exhibit outstanding sportsmanship during competitive events throughout the school year.
Since 2006, the GHSA and Georgia’s EMCs, including CFEMC, 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.”
For the 2020-2021 school year, two CFEMC area schools were selected as award recipients to include East Coweta High School and McIntosh High School.
CFEMC presented the award to East Coweta High School during a Friday night football game kickoff. East Coweta High School Assistant Principal/Athletic Director Hap Hines expressed his gratitude during the acceptance of the award, which is a testament of the hard work of all those involved in the achievement of the award, according to Hines.
“This award is a representation of the hard work of our student athletes at East Coweta High School, as well as the exemplary leadership and support from our coaches, faculty, staff, and the community,” said Hines. “We believe in helping students grow, learn, and be the best they can be athletically, academically, and socially. This award is a true testament of that.”
