Local Student Athlete Honored at VIP Award Ceremony
The Vanguard Award Selection Committee is proud to announce that Jeremiah Green, a senior from Hillsborough High School, has been selected as the October Student Athlete of the Month. Members of the committee will honor his outstanding achievements in the community, athletics and academics during an exclusive ceremony on Tuesday, November 6th at 8:30 am at Hillsborough High School located at 5000 North Central Avenue, Tampa, Florida 33603.
Jeremiah has invited twenty VIP members from the student body that he would like to attend the award presentation. During the ceremony, the Vanguard Award Selection Committee, which is comprised of attorneys from Vanguard Attorneys, Tampa Bay business leaders, and educational professionals, will present Jeremiah with an award as well as a $1,000 check to be donated to the school’s athletic department. The committee is thrilled to commend Jeremiah’s successes as a well rounded student athlete.
An outstanding football and track player, Jeremiah works with a steadfast commitment to overcome adversity and achieve his goals. He is currently the National Champion in the Triple Jump and an All County, District, and Conference 1st team football player. His track coach, Joe Sipp, says Jeremiah is the strength, heart and soul of his team. A true leader, Jeremiah gives back to the community as a mentor to athletes ages 5-17 who compete on the Tampa Trailblazers track team. Jeremiah has also maintained an excellent GPA and plans to attend a Division 1 university on a track scholarship.
“Here’s a young man who is constantly in the paper for making winning plays on the football. Not only is he someone his team members can continually rely on to dominate offensively, but he also makes a tremendous commitment to excel in the classroom. On top of it all, he is a genuinely nice person. He truly embodies all components of an Vanguard Award winner and we are thrilled to be able to recognize him this month as our Student Athlete winner.”
