George Thanasas Scholar-Athlete Award sign revealed
Homecoming day was also an occassion for remembrance as we unveiled the placard recognizing the George Thanasas Scholar-Athlete Award in the new Boll Campus Center. Family, friends, coaches and faculty gathered just outside the Fruehauf Gymnasium to dedicate the sign, with remarks delivered by Boys Varsity Soccer Coach David Dwaihy and Head of School Bart Bronk.
"On many occasions as the Boll Campus Center was being built, I referred to the gymnasium as the 'heart' of this facility, but this sign is definitely its soul," said Bronk.
In addition, Anthony George '18 was recognized as the first recipient of the Lifetime George Thanasas Scholar-Athlete Award. Lifetime recognition is bestowed on student-athletes who were three-season varsity athletes and who maintained a 3.5 GPA or higher for all four years of Upper School.
"I looked up to George in more ways than one," said George. "Receiving this award and being associated with his legacy is an incredible honor."
