The Grand Junction Lions Club presented the 2nd Annual Grand Valley Student Athlete Award Ceremony, on Tuesday, May 6th, 2014, at Two Rivers Convention Center.
This year Grand Junction Lions Club recognized eight student athletes from each area high school for their academic and athletics accomplishments in high school. Award recipients were selected by the faculty, coaches and administrators from each school. Each award recipient is presented with a plaque to recognize their award. In addition each award recipient selected a local not-for-profit organization and the Grand Junction Lions Club made a donation in the amount of $250.00 to that not-for-profit organization on the recipient’s behalf.
Previously, the Grand Junction Lions Club has recognized two outstanding student athletes from Grand Junction High School with the Joe Biggs award, but made a decision starting this year to recognize two student athletes from each area high school for their outstanding achievements both on the field and in the class room.
“We are very excited to recognize these outstanding young people for their accomplishments both in the classroom and on the field of athletic competition.” Ky Oday, Chairman, Grand Junction Lions Club Grand Valley Student Athlete Award Committee.
