Each year select freshmen are also recognized for their outstanding qualities in athletics, the classroom and community, as well as their potential to be future Hitchcock award nominees.  Georgia Blaze and Tanner Moore were selected as Macon East’s freshman certificate winners for 2018.  Georgia is a Knights cheerleader and plays volleyball, basketball, and softball.  Tanner participates in football, basketball, baseball, and the fishing team.
