CHHS Receives GHSA Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award
Chapel Hill High School was among 64 Georgia High School Association (GHSA)-member schools named a recipient of the Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award. The award, which is sponsored by Georgia’s Electric Membership Cooperatives (EMCs), honors schools that demonstrated impeccable sportsmanship during the 2022-2023 school year.

“It is an honor to have been selected by GHSA as one of its Cooperative Spirit sportsmanship award winners. We value what it means to display sportsmanship here at CHHS, and our student athletes work very hard on and off the playing fields,” said CHHS athletic director Rodney Latham. “This award attests to what our coaches here instill and require of their players. Expectations are set high and we are concerned about winning in the game of life which translates to our overall success. We have a great community and support system here at Chapel Hill and it is a pleasure to be our school's athletic director and witness such greatness.”

Since 2006, the GHSA and Georgia’s EMCs have sponsored the Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award which reinforces the GHSA philosophy: “Students, athletes, coaches, spectators and all others associated with high school activities programs should adhere to the fundamental values of respect, fairness, honesty and responsibility.”

Schools winning this award are thus honored for displaying exemplary sportsmanship during competition throughout the school year. Student athletes, fellow students, school staff, parents and event spectators are recognized for the sportsmanship they display. The award is not only a school honor, but a community honor as well. The GHSA Region Secretaries select winners based upon sportsmanship demonstrated throughout the school year.

“Congratulations to all of the region winners of the GHSA Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award for 2022-2023,” said Dr. Robin Hines, GHSA’s executive director. “It is an honor for these member schools to be selected by their regions for this award. The characteristics of good sportsmanship are critical to the development of our young people as they transition into productive adults. The GHSA applauds our schools on this accomplishment and appreciates Georgia’s EMCs for their support of this outstanding recognition program.”

Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Awards are presented annually to the GHSA-member high schools in the 64 regions from the eight classifications by EMC representatives during fall athletic events and school assemblies.
