Highlander Award Winners

Updated: Aug 29, 2019

lebrating The Achievements Of HHS Athletes

The Highlander Award was founded in 1981 by the Booster Club to help promote and support Varsity sports at Homestead High School. The Award was created to recognize the student-athlete for their character and leadership on and off the field of competition. Candidates of this award are first nominated by their coach, and recipients are than chosen by their team mates by secret ballot.

The young men and women who win the Highlander Award set examples for younger student athletes and help represent what is great about our our athletic programs. There are five criteria that each student athlete must meet in order for them to be considered for the Highlander Award and they are as follows:

  1. The candidate makes contributions to the team beyond his/her athletic ability

  2. Demonstrates positive leadership

  3. Displays appropriate attitudes, sets an excellent example on and off the field of play and is a role model for all student athletes

  4. Must be a positive citizen of the Homestead High School community, and

  5. Must not have any Athletic code violations during the current school year

Congratulations to all Highlander Award Winners!
