Sean Harrison and Johanna Kelley accepted the Athlete of the Year Awards during Middlebury Union High School's final assembly. The award is presented in honor of the late Paul Gonzalez (1944-1962).
The award statement said Gonzalez "was a superstar in the eyes of his teammates through his attributes of sportsmanship, positive role model, citizenship, dedication and selflessness. He was truly a team player. He represented his school with pride and dignity."
The MUHS Class of 1963 honors his memory each year by presenting the Athlete of the Year Award to the young man and woman that best emulate these qualities.
Faculty and staff said Sean and Johanna certainly deserve these awards through their dedication to their respective sports.
Sean will be furthering his athletic career at Holderness and Johanna will be doing the same at St. Lawrence University.
