Meijer and 97.9 WGRD are saluting greater Grand Rapids' and West Michigan's outstanding student-athletes and their achievements by feting them as Meijer-97.9 WGRD High School Athlete of the Week during the 2014-2015 academic year.
However, we need your help in identifying these outstanding student-athletes to recognize their efforts both on and off the field.
On a weekly basis from September through May -- with the exception of over the holidays, 97.9 WGRD and Meijer will select and announce the Meijer-97.9 WGRD High School Athlete of the Week. Those selected will be recognized with a plaque, showcased online by WGRD and hyped on air and through social media -- as well as announced on Channel 95.7, 100.5 The River, 98.7 WFGR and 1410 AM The Touch.
Nominations can be made by anyone -- coaches, teachers, administrators, athletic boosters, supporters or even proud parents, grandparents and friends.
Nominees must be submitted each week by noon Tuesday, with nominees considered on a rolling basis.
The Meijer-97.9 WGRD High School Athlete of the Week will be announced each week on Thursday or Friday during the 2014-2015 school year from September through May, except for the holiday weeks in late December.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, this program is no longer being done. We hope to bring it back in the future.
