Special to the Citizen Madison, Oct. 10, 2014:
Central Georgia EMC representative, Jeff Greeson presented the Georgia High School Association’s Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award to Athletic Director, Steven Cisson before the Morgan County Bulldogs Homecoming.
This is the second year in a row that the school has been recognized for their sportsmanship on and off the field.
The award program honors schools that exhibit exemplary sportsmanship during competitive events and is sponsored by Georgia’s Electric Membership Corporations. Introduced in 2006, the Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award program reinforces GHSA’s philosophy, which states: “Student athletes, coaches, spectators, and all others associated with high school activity programs should adhere to the fundamental values of respect, fairness, honesty, and responsibility.”
Only one school in each division in each region is chosen to receive this annual award. The GHSA takes into consideration all aspects of sportsmanship during events—student athletes on the field as well as fellow students, school staff, parents, and game spectators, making the award a tribute to the entire community.
Headquartered in Jackson, Georgia, Central Georgia EMC is a not-for-profit consumer-owned electric distribution system and meets the energy needs of members in a fourteen county area: Bibb, Butts, Clayton, Fayette, Henry, Jasper, Jones, Lamar, Monroe, Morgan, Newton, Pike, Putnam, and Spalding counties.
