Cherryville Wins NCHSAA Exemplary School Award

Lincoln Herald Staff

The North Carolina High School Athletic Association has announced the selection of Jones High School in Trenton, NC (eastern part of the state) and Cherryville High School as the 2020-2021 Exemplary School Award winners. This award is presented annually from nominations received from member schools. The awards are given as a cooperative venture among the NCHSAA, the North Carolina Coaches Association and the North Carolina Athletic Directors Association. In addition to a trophy and a banner for display at the respective schools, each school receives a $1000 cash award.

The Exemplary School Award recognizes the top overall school in the state in terms of the “total program,” including but not limited to athletic success, the scope of athletic opportunities offered, facilities, community interest and involvement, academics and the like. The award was revamped this year to include measurements of commitment to participation in NCHSAA programs and opportunities, the school’s sportsmanship profiles, as well as professional development of administrators. 

Cherryville High School has a proud athletic history, including a strong baseball program. Cherryville boasts a National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) School Honor Role Level 1 distinction, which requires 90% or more of the athletic coaching staff at the school to complete four specific professional development courses through NFHS Learn.

The Ironmen also regularly participate in the NCHSAA Scholarship program and submit Performance of the Week Award nominations. The Cherryville administration has demonstrated a commitment to advanced certifications, evidenced by Athletic Director Scott Harrill’s Certified Master Athletic Administrator (CMAA) status as recognized by the NIAAA.
