Area students are selected by Mon Valley athletic directors and high school principals and are recognized at the banquet for their academic and athletic accomplishments. The Sports Hall of Fame Committee awards a certificate of merit reflecting personal dedication to achieving the highest standards of excellence as a scholar and in sportsmanship.
This prestigious event bonds generations of area athletes by bringing together the past generation of Hall of Fame recipients with the present generation of athletes. This is ceremoniously represented in the seating arrangement, in which the scholar athletes sit on a tier below the Hall of Fame inductees, challenging the students to achieve a goal that Hall of Fame personalities have accomplished.
The 2018 student scholar athlete recipients are:
Belle Vernon Area High School: Chris McCullough and Taylor Kovatch
Bentworth High School: Ashton Lopez and Jenna Vito
Brownsville Area High School: Jaden Harvey and Sara Vance
California Area High School: Braden Collins and Bailey Vig
Charleroi Area High School: Caleb Carson and Sierra Short
