Seth Meadows and Alex Wyrosdick were honored to represent Macon East Academy this year as nominees for the prestigious Jimmy Hitchcock Award. Since 1959, the YMCA of Greater Montgomery has recognized Christian leadership in athletics through the Jimmy Hitchcock Memorial Award. The banquet, held each year at Frazer United Methodist Church, honors area seniors nominated by their school who possess the qualities of strong personal character, dependability, effort, team and church leadership, school leadership, and academic excellence. Alex and Seth both stand out among their peers at Macon East as outstanding students in the classroom as well as leaders in their sport, church, and community. The YMCA also acknowledges high school freshman who possess these same qualities and aspire to one day be Hitchcock nominees. This year’s freshman certificate recipients from Macon East were Emily Claire Lott and Jake Wyrosdick.
