South Fork Courage Award

Lincoln Herald Staff

The South Fork 2A Athletic Conference is pleased to announce that they have a created a new award, the South Fork Courage Award, to be presented to a member school's worthy student athlete, coach, or administrator who has shown exemplary personal courage in the face of an illness or some other catastrophic event in their lives during the current school year.

The member schools' athletic directors will nominate a person in one of the listed categories.  The winner will then be selected by an unaffiliated committee of persons from the conference area.  Their selection will be approved by the South Fork Conference's representative.

"Too often, we don' get to share in some personal matters of our student athletes, coaches, or administrators.  We focus on wins and losses and statistics.  Some battles are way more serious that a batting average or a completions percentage," Butch Parker, Conference Executive Secretary told us. "We hope to spotlight that particular recipient by presenting this award.  It will be presented by Executive Secretary of the South Fork Athletic Conference and is sponsored by Lake Electric of Maiden, our official Conference Corporate Sponsor at the winner's school at a Senior Awards Day or other day chosen by the school.

The conference held its annual year-end meeting Thursday and transitioned from Lincolnton as host school and Cole Sigmon as conference president to incoming president Matt Schlegel of Lake Norman Charter High School.

The South Fork 2A Conference includes all four Lincoln County Schools high schools--Lincolnton, West Lincoln, North Lincoln & East Lincoln--plus Catawba County schools Maiden, Newton-Conover & Bandys and Lake Norman Charter School in Huntersville.
