CAAC Seniors Impressive

     It's one of my favorite nights of the year-- the CAAC Senior scholar/athlete award ceremonies-- this year held Wednesday at Jackson Parkside Middle School.  The 26 league schools honor their top ten senior athletes who letter in at least two sports-- and the best grade point averages from those who qualify.  Mason and East Lansing honored 11-- they had ties for number ten.

     Eastern Michigan football coach Ron English offered some words of advice-- there is always a motivational speaker each year-- and he was good as the previous speakers have been.  So we gave plaques to 262 seniors who are the cream of the crop of kids in the area-- and for me it never gets old.  Everyone is dressed up and beaming including the parents.  The athletic directors and principals attend and we salute those serving America in the service academies-- four in all so honored Wednesday night.  Parents must be proud and feel great when the year end high school activities begin with this CAAC traditional night and it's a unique and tremendous event.  Hope I'm invited again next year.

    Tim, thanks for being the Master of Ceremonies last night. You and Ron made it even more memorable with your recognition and words of praise for these "cream of the crop" high school scholar athletes.
