Mikaela Sanders '19 was named one of Georgia's most positive athletes at the Sixth Annual Georgia Positive Athlete Awards.
Mikaela received the honor of being the most positive girls cross country athlete in the state and was also one of two recipients of the Delta Air Lines Positive Athlete Scholarship.
This year, more than 5,400 nominations from coaches, principals, athletic directors, teachers, and parents were submitted representing 415 public and private schools in Georgia.
The Positive Athlete Awards were created to promote more positivity in youth sports. In addition to excellence on the field, each nominated positive athlete was required to show characteristics such as an optimistic attitude, teammate encouragement, servant leadership, heart for others, ability to admit imperfections, giving 100 percent all the time, and realizing the team as more important than the individual.
