Glynn County Hall of Fame Announces 2022 Ambassadors


The Glynn County Sports Hall of Fame Board of Directors announce the student-athletes who make up its Ambassadors group for the Class of 2022.

These graduating seniors from Brunswick High, Glynn Academy, and Frederica Academy are the ninth Ambassadors group the Hall of Fame has honored as part of its community outreach program started back in 2014.

Near the end of each school year, the Hall of Fame works in conjunction with the three local high schools to identify senior athletes who have excelled both academically and athletically while participating in athletics at their respective schools.

Since the inception of the Ambassadors program, the Hall of Fame has honored nearly 200 student-athletes from the three local high schools.

With generous support from several donors, the Hall of Fame has been fortunate to award scholarships to 36 student-athletes since a scholarship component was added to the program in the second year of its existence.

Four student-athletes — two girls and two boys — have been named from each local high school this year. One boy and one girl from each school have been selected for a $500 scholarship award.

Hall of Fame president Kevin Price praised the 2022 Ambassadors for their accomplishments.

“As always, these student-athletes are an impressive group,” Price said. “Our board of directors, we are always amazed at the many accomplishments of these kids. Yes, they have excelled in their sports, but they also have excelled academically, and they are very much involved in their schools in a lot of other ways which is always good to see. They are well-rounded individuals, high-achieving kids who put in the time to do well in the athletic and academic arenas while branching out and doing other things as well.

“At the end of the day, it’s really easy to understand why they have had the success they have had in the sports they play and why they have helped their teams in the ways they have. We certainly wish all these kids the best as they move on and continue to represent our community as their athletic and academic careers take them to other places.”
