The Florence School District One recently held its Male and Female Athlete of the Year ceremonies with student nominees representing each of the three high schools.

Each high school nominated one male and one female athlete, and a committee of local sports editors and directors selected the district winners announced at the Florence Country Club.

Nominees included South Florence’s Saphire Campbell and Micheal Mason; West Florence's Hanna D. Skipper and Cooper Wallace; and Wilson’s Kiashia Jones and Nicholas Jacobs. Skipper was nominated posthumously. She died in a September automobile accident.

Kiashia Jones of Wilson and Cooper Wallace of West Florence received the Florence 1 Schools 2019 Female and Male Athlete of the Year Awards, respectively.

Florence One Director of Second ary Education Dr. Kelvin Wymbs also presented the winner of this year’s “You’ve Gotta Have Heart” Award to Wilson’s Nicholas Jacobs.

This annual event is sponsored by Florence Athletic Hall of Fame, Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Sarvis, Mr. and Mrs. Blake Pate and Jostens. Vickie and Terry Grantham, Ken Lester and Dickie Lester donated awards. Jerry Lee is program organizer.
