The Muskegon Chronicle
Muskegon Sports Hall of Fame
 Scholar-Athlete awards
A subcommittee of seven members accepts a single male and female nominee for the award from each high school in the area. Five finalists are then selected from those nominated, before the annual honor is bestowed upon the students that best exemplify a combination of scholastic achievement, athletic excellence and community service. In 2005, a cash award was added to the honor. Special thanks go out to our financial sponsors:
