Senior Tiwan Jones, Jr., a member of North Springs’ varsity wrestling and lacrosse teams, was named today as a regional winner for Hines Ward’s “Positive Athlete” organization which comes along with recognition and scholarships. He goes on to compete at the state level and those awards will be announced in May.
From the Positive Athlete Website:
Positive Athlete is a celebration of young Athletes who have overcome difficult circumstances, given back to their schools and communities in a significant way, or just have an infectious positive attitude that makes everyone around them a better person. We celebrate them with awards, corporately sponsored scholarships, unique opportunities, and CNN Sports tells their stories on a national media platform to inspire other athletes. Over 7 years, thousands of high school athletes have been nominated by coaches, parents, teachers, family members, and fans. And over $250,000 in scholarships have been awarded.
Tiwan is a great leader both on and off the field, serving as one our our lacrosse team captains. Congratulations Tiwan on this great recognition – it is well deserved!
