Armuchee High School has been selected to receive a Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award for the school community’s superior efforts at displaying good sportsmanship over the past year.
The Georgia Electric Membership Corporation (GEMC) presents the Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award to honor Georgia High School Association (GHSA) schools that exhibit exemplary sportsmanship during competitive events. Armuchee High School joins 47 other GHSA schools across the state this year to receive the sportsmanship distinction for the 2014-2015 school year.
Since 1999, Georgia’s EMCs have sponsored GHSA championship events. The Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Awards program was introduced in 2006 as a means for GHSA and GEMC to work together in promoting sportsmanship in Georgia. The principles of the award stress concern for community and cooperation in athletics and in life.
Selected by GHSA region secretaries, the Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award honors sportsmanship demonstrated by athletes, students, parents, coaches and spectators. This is the second time Armuchee High has won the award in the last four years. Armuchee also won the award for the 2011-2012 school year.
