CHESHIRE, Conn. – Three hundred forty-six senior student athletes were honored as CIAC Scholar Athletes at the 36th Annual CAS-CIAC Scholar Athlete Banquet at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington Sunday night. The event is the largest of the many honors programs CAS-CIAC hosts each year.
The Scholar Athlete program recognizes two high school senior student-athletes – one boy and one girl – from each member high school whose academic and athletic careers have been exemplary, whose personal standards and achievement are a model to others, and who possess high levels of integrity, self-discipline and courage. The honorees are chosen by the member schools and are submitted to the CIAC.
More than 1,700 students, family members, school administrators and coaches were in attendance salute the Scholar Athletes and recognize their achievements. Adam Greenberg, former major league baseball player and Connecticut high school standout provided the keynote address. Retired ESPN anchor Bob Picozzi served as the host for the evening.
