Jarecki Named State Scholar-Athlete of the Year


Senior Sydney Jarecki was awarded the Bill Simpson Award that recognizes the most outstanding male and female scholar-athlete in the S.C. Independent School Association each spring.  Each of the over 120 schools that are members of SCISA may nominate a scholar-athlete for this award, which is the highest award SCISA bestows upon a student. A resume with Sydney’s academic and athletic accomplishments, along with a recommendation from Mr. Fred Moulton, Headmaster, was forwarded to the selection committee at SCISA that made the final decision.  The criteria for the award include SAT score, class rank, involvement in extracurricular activities, academic and athletic achievement, coaches’ recommendations, and community service record. Mr. Mike Fanning, SCISA Athletic Director, presented Sydney with the award at the Spring Athletic Awards Program. Sydney is the twelfth Wilson Hall student to receive this award.
