Fahey Bank begins the 36th year of our sponsorship of the Athlete of the Month program. Begun in 1981, this program is designed to recognize the hard work and dedication of the many high school students throughout Marion County who strive every day to succeed — not only in athletics, but in life.
The athletes of the Month are chosen by a panel comprised of the athletic directors from the six Marion County schools, along with representatives of the Marion Star and WMRN sports department. Each of the athletic directors nominate a male and female athlete from their school whom they feel have particularly excelled. The panel then votes. The athletes who receive the top three placements are then re-voted upon to receive their respective Athlete of the Month honors. Congratulations to all Athlete of the Month winners and nominees during the 2017-2018 school year.
