DEWITT, N.Y. - YNN has started a new weekly series to recognize the top high school varsity scholar-athletes in our viewing areas, with an emphasis on community involvement and classroom performance in addition to athletic performance. Our first honoree is Jamesville-DeWitt tennis player Kyrin Pollack.
The Scholar-Athlete of the Week feature will air on Wednesday evenings. We ask that only athletic directors nominate candidates so if you know of a deserving player please have your AD contact YNN.
About Scholar Athlete of the Week
YNN in proud to announce a new program designed to honor, highlight and celebrate the best "Scholar Athletes" in our local high schools. The YNN Scholar Athlete of the Week will launch this December.
Each week during the school year, we'll choose one scholar athlete for a profile that will be seen on YNN, YNN.com and Local on Demand, channel 1020 (channel 1111 in the Hudson Valley). Those athletes will also be featured in a year-end special honoring all the athletes.
All nominations are to be made directly from school administrators or athletic directors.
