Celebrating Sportsmanship

Local Schools Earn Cooperative Spirit Honors


Six local high schools recently won a Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award for outstanding sportsmanship during competitive events. Jackson EMC, along with 31 other participating electric cooperatives in partnership with Georgia EMC, sponsors the award.

Apalachee High School, Cedar Shoals High School, Clarke Central High School, Commerce High School, Dacula High School and Duluth High School were named local winners. Only one school in each region within each Georgia High School Association (GHSA) classification receives a Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award.


“This award acknowledges the positive character of student-athletes, coaches and fans demonstrated at competitive events,” said Karen Ewing, community relations representative for Jackson EMC. “It also recognizes the cooperative values of respect, fairness, honesty and responsibility.”
