The Williamson Herald, in conjunction with John Maher Builders, is proud to sponsor the John Maher/Williamson Herald Scholar Athlete Program. Each month, one male and one female Williamson County scholar athletes are chosen from nominations from the community.
A four-person selection committee made up of representatives from John Maher Builders and the Herald consider nominations submitted from schools, coaches or families. The committee will weigh each nominee on the basis of grade point average, leadership qualities, community service, athletic competition and a submitted paragraph (written by the nominator) about the student.
• Each winner of the monthly award will receive a certificate declaring them as Athlete of the Month
• A picture and bio of the male and female winners will be published each month in the Williamson Herald
A banquet is held each spring for the nominees and their families. Two winners are selected for a scholarship from John Maher Builders.
