Fairness and mutual respect are just two of the character-building qualities that represent good sportsmanship. 

To celebrate these qualities, Coweta-Fayette EMC recently honored East Coweta High School in Sharpsburg with the 2013 Georgia High School Association’s (GHSA’s) Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award.

Mary Ann Bell, Coweta-Fayette EMC’s Vice President of Marketing, presented the sportsmanship trophy — which honors GHSA member schools that exhibited outstanding sportsmanship during the 2012-2013 school year — to staff, coaches and athletes at the Region 3 AAAAAA high school Oct. 31.

“We are thrilled to present the Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award to East Coweta High School,” said Bell. “This school’s students, spectators and teammates have continually exhibited good sportsmanship and character, both on the field and in the stands.”

Introduced in 2006 and sponsored by Georgia’s electric cooperatives and the GHSA, the Cooperative Spirit Award promotes sportsmanship at competitive events and honors the conduct of not only student athletes, but also that of fellow students, parents, coaches and spectators, making the award a tribute to the entire school community.

“Good sportsmanship is one of the most important principles a person can have, both in life and in sports,” said Bell. “And it definitely falls in line with cooperative values. Coweta-Fayette EMC is proud to support this teamwork-centered initiative.”

Coweta-Fayette EMC is a consumer-owned cooperative providing electricity and related services to over 74,000 member accounts in Coweta, Fayette, Heard, South Fulton, Clayton, Spalding, Troup and Meriwether Counties.
