HPT HiToms Unveil Student Athlete of the Week Program
High Point/Thomasville, NC – In an effort to “tell the story” of our community’s next generation, the High Point-Thomasville HiToms have joined forces with the High Point Enterprise and the Rotary Club of High Point for a six-week, scholastic Student-Athlete of the Week recognition series.
“As one of the leaders in the HPT amateur sports community, the HiToms are thrilled to be a part of this pioneering student-athlete recognition effort,” HPT HiToms President Greg Suire said. “With the success of our Coastal Plain League and American Legion Baseball programs and the launch of the Mickey Truck Bodies Football Kick-Off Classic, the HiToms’ “circle of influence” is now expanding to all scholastic sports.”
Designed to motivate local student-athletes to excel, the Student-Athlete of the Week program is a concentrated effort to inspire our community’s next generation and spotlight their journey of success.
“The Rotary Club of High Point prides itself on supporting and celebrating our community and our children,” High Point Rotary Club President Ken Esposito said. “This is a perfect fit for our mission and we are excited to join community partners in highlighting good things that come from our youth. They work hard and we want them to know, without a doubt, that we notice.”
Starting in late March, the HPT Student-Athlete of the Week will be awarded to spring sports athletes in both male and female categories. Released in the Friday edition of the High Point-Enterprise, the Student-Athlete of the Week series will concentrate on the HPE’s coverage footprint (southern Triad) and highlight our communities most outstanding performers.
“The High Point Enterprise is proud to partner with two respected organizations — the HiToms and the High Point Rotary Club — to honor these athletes, High Point Enterprise Published Rick Thomason said. “These remarkable young people deserve to be recognized for their athletic accomplishments which are a testament to the hours and hours of hard work they put in prior to ever taking the field or the court.”
