The Weber School is proud to participate in Positive Athlete Georgia, a state-wide program recognizing student-athletes whose presence and attitude positively impacts their team and school environment. From now until March 15, 2016, Weber coaches, parents, and community members are encouraged to nominate Weber student-athletes, of every grade and in every sport, that have either given back to their schools/community, or have overcome difficult circumstances in some way.
The student-athletes that are nominated are eligible to win Positive Athlete awards for their sport AND corporately funded scholarships at both the county and state-wide level. Ultimately, the 28 most positive high school athletes in the state are crowned by Hines Ward and other high-profile professional athletes representing the Braves, Falcons, Hawks, Dream, UGA and Georgia Tech in June of 2016 at the College Football Hall of Fame. The Weber School will also present a Positive Athlete award to a student-athlete in each sport, with recognition given at the Spring Sports banquet.
