Texas High School Christian Athlete of the Year Banquet is held annually where a statewide award called Texas Christian Athlete of the year is given out. This banquet is hosted by an organization called the LWFCI, who refer to themselves as the Chaplains for Champions. These “Chaplains for Champions” are most famously known for being the actual chaplains for the U.S. Olympic teams at every Olympics going back forty years.
This year’s finalists included 1913 girls and 1809 boys who were nominated from across the state of Texas including Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Houston, and our very own Anna. Out of this large number of nominees, LWFCI narrowed it down to 75 finalists for the award. Anna ISD had four honorees that made the prestigious cut including AlexyKate Schofield, Madison Hemenway, Hannah Heath, and Nick Reid! As each nominee was introduced, they told where they were from, future plans, and accomplishments. While at the awards banquet, Anna ISD students got to meet Dallas Cowboy’s Owner Jerry Jones as well as Olympic Track and Field Athlete and Ex-Dallas Cowboy Carl Owens.
Congratulations to these Anna High School athletes!
