Palmer, Minnick receive awards at annual WHS athletic banquet

June 11, 2008

The Williamsport High School All Sports Banquet was May 28 at the Williamsport Fire Hall.

Two special awards, the Joseph K. Scott Award, named after a former WHS principal, and the Richard E. Doub Award, named after a longtime WHS coach, were awarded to a WHS male and female scholar athlete. The awards are based on grades and athletic performance.

Jessica Palmer received the Richard E. Doub Outstanding Female-Scholar-Athlete Award and Greg Minnick received the Joseph K. Scott Outstanding Male Scholar-Athlete Award.

Earlier in the year, the WHS Athletic Boosters and the school administration realized that the students might not know or appreciate who the two gentlemen the awards were named for and how much those men meant to Williamsport High School.

Chris Malott, head girls basketball coach, and Emily Crabtree, volleyball coach, were asked to tell the students about the men and their contributions to WHS.

Emily and Chris are brother and sister.

Both graduated from WHS, played three sports in the early 1980s and now are coaching at WHS.

This event has been held annually for more than 25 years honoring all WHS athletes. More than 270 athletes, their families and guests attended the event.
