CCHS is an A.F. Bridges Award Finalist

CROSSVILLE — Cumberland County High School has been selected as one of three divisional finalists for the A.F. Bridges Sportsmanship Award for the 2011-2012 school year. It is a tremendous honor to be selected as a finalist, as only nine AAA schools are selected from across the state, and just three in the middle Tennessee region. The student-athletes, coaches, and administration of CCHS are extremely proud of this accomplishment and will continue to “Just Do What’s Right!”

As part of the "Just Do What's Right!" program, TSSAA recognizes member schools that have made the effort to remind their athletic family that there is a particular code of conduct, a particular level of expected behavior, and a way to act that is proper if one wishes to be a part of an athletic contest, regardless of how they participate.

"Just Do What's Right!" focuses on the foundation of what the TSSAA hopes all participants will do. Just do what you are supposed to do in representing yourself, your family, your school, and community.

Those schools that received no reported unsportsmanlike conduct incidents during the 2011-2012 season have received a certificate highlighting the "Just Do What's Right" logo and this effort. The TSSAA is specifically recognizing proper sportsmanship at athletic contests, but the organization understands that the athletic contests are a small part of the educational program.

Divisional Awards: Local officials associations have been asked to nominate schools they service that have displayed this overall positive effort to teach, to expect, and to demand a positive atmosphere of sportsmanship at their particular contests. Member schools have also been asked to nominate individuals or schools for special recognition for going the extra mile to do what's right.

From these nominees and the schools that have received no reported unsportsmanlike conduct during the previous school year, 27 schools have been selected to receive the A.F. Bridges Award at the divisional level. Three Class A, three Class AA, and three Class AAA schools in each grand division have been recognized for a total of nine schools in each division and 27 schools overall. These schools will be presented "Just Do What's Right!" recognition banners at the regional meetings in each grand division of the state during November 2012.

State Award of Excellence: Of these 27 divisional recipients, one school in each class will receive Tennessee's top award for overall outstanding effort in its division. These schools will be presented the A.F. Bridges State Award of Excellence. This is the highest award that can be bestowed upon a school to honor its overall efforts to promote citizenship and sportsmanship at school, and at athletic contests.
