Each week, Corbett coaches come together to nominate student athletes who display one of the 5 pillars: Responsibility, Respect, Citizenship, Fairness, and Trustworthiness.
“We do this to reward those students for making the right decisions,” said Coach Pemelton.
Acknowledging students for doing the right thing has an impact on the individual student and those who are watching.
Pemelton said, “We give the athletes of the week free lunch passes to the front of the line and a certificate.”
A former athlete of the week recipient Evan Busch, eighth grader, said he received the award for responsibility and sportsmanship.
Busch said receiving the nomination had a positive effect on him. “Yes, it helps, because I can always strive to be better,” said Busch.
