The highlight of the evening is the announcement of the Kenneth H. Bastian, Jr. Patriot Pride Award. This award is received by one girl and one boy and it is the highest honor bestowed upon our middle school athletes. Kenneth H. Bastain, Jr. was a public servant, educator and athlete. He served as our Headmaster from 1986-1996. He is remembered for his great character and heart and this award is given to the middle school athlete that embodies these same ideals. This year’s recipients are Chloe Conover and Daniel Vermillion.
Congratulations to all of our middle school athletes!
