The Ohio High School Athletic Association has announced that Bishop Watterson High School has won the prestigious Harold A. Meyer Award for sportsmanship, ethics and integrity not only within Bishop Watterson but also within the community at large. Bishop Watterson is one of just 20 schools to receive this honor.
The award, named for the late OHSAA commissioner and presented every year since 1992, is presented to schools that demonstrate sportsmanship, ethics and integrity through completion of an eight-part program. The program includes development campaigns to nurture the three values in a school’s student body, student athletes, coaches, parents, fans and public address announcers.
“We are very proud to be a recipient of this award,” said Principal Marian Hutson. “Treating people with respect is an integral part of the mission of our school. In all aspects of life we strive to live up to the high ideals of ethical behavior, good sportsmanship and acting with integrity as espoused by the Ohio High School Athletic Association.”
“Scott Manahan has done a tremendous job heading up our efforts to keep sportsmanship, integrity and ethics as the main focal point of our athletic programs,” said Athletic Director Mike Roark. “His collaboration with our principal Marian Hutson, Sister Mary Hope Sieron and our student body speaks to his dedication to this ever-important message. The Harold A. Meyer Award simply puts the exclamation point on his dedication.”
