Local media outlets have been highlighting the Strovis Character Counts Awards in recent articles.

The first eight Georgetown High School student-athletes inducted as the first members of the program have been featured on the Georgetown and Beyond News site and in an article in the Feb. 14 edition of The Georgetown Times.

Georgetown-based Strovis Holdings initiated the yearlong awards program in September after entering into a partnership with the GHS Bulldogs Athletic Booster Club.

Through the program, Strovis and the Booster Club honors student-athletes from each of GHS’ varsity sports. Coaches from each sport select the winner, based, in part, on good character traits possessed by the student-athlete. The Strovis Character Count Award emphasizes the importance of being a student-athlete of good character and integrity. Each award will note at least one important character trait that the winning athlete demonstrates. For example, athletes will be honored for perseverance, helpfulness, dependability, responsibility, resourcefulness, determination, loyalty, attentiveness, adaptability and dedication, among other admirable traits.

Once selected, a member of the Strovis management team and a representative of the GHS Booster Club present each of the selected athletes with a special certificate and a $50 cash prize.

At the end of the school year, each individual honoree will be in the running to be named the Strovis Character Counts Athlete of the Year and the recipient of a $250 cash prize.

“I am extremely excited that Strovis chose to kick off this program at Georgetown High School,” said GHS Booster Club President Kelly Cagle. “This award not only honors a student-athlete in every varsity sport, but it also emphasizes how critically important it is for our athletes to be not only be good while playing their sport but also while interacting with other students, family members, friends, and the public on a daily basis.”

Already this school year, eight student-athletes have been inducted from the school’s fall sports. They are:

•Darrian Gardner, Swim Team.

•Hannah Nash, Girls Tennis Team.

•Erin Hoskins, Volleyball Team.

•Grant Hall, Boys Cross Country Team.

•Grace Geer, Girls Cross Country Team.

•Caroline Smith, Girls Golf Team.

•Terril Steele, Football Team.

•Kallie Cannon, Competitive Cheer Team.

Athletes from Boys Basketball, Girls Basketball, Baseball, Softball, Boys Golf, Boys Soccer, Girls Soccer, Boys Tennis, Track & Field, Volleyball, and  Wrestling will named in the spring. The Strovis Character Counts Athlete of the Year will be named at the end of the school year.

“As a Georgetown-based company, we wanted to honor student-athletes not only for their hard work in their chosen sport but also the way they conduct themselves as young people,” said Jenna Jordan, CEO of Strovis Holdings, which manages Strovis Insurance, Strovis Payroll and Strovis Benefits. “These students are Georgetown’s leaders of tomorrow, and how they conduct themselves while being an athlete, as well as being a member of the community, is important to recognize now.”

Athletes in the winter and spring sports will be recognized over the next few weeks.

In addition to its corporate headquarters at 1309 Highmarket St. in Georgetown, Strovis has offices in Murrells Inlet, Summerville and Mount Pleasant and clients throughout the United States.
