by posted 09/22/2022

Nominate an FHYAA member today!

Via Fairfax County Government:

FHYAA Community,

Here's your chance to nominate your athlete, parent, or coach in the FHYAA community who deserves this recognition. 

Read on for more information.


Dear Athletic Community,
The 2023 Stephen A. McLaughlin Fairfax County Champions of Character awards committee is currently accepting nominations! 
The Champions of Character ceremony has been renamed in honor of Stephen A. McLaughlin, Providence District Representative.  Mr. McLaughlin’s service on the Athletic Council began when he was appointed by then Providence District Supervisor Gerry Connolly, to represent the Providence District on the Athletic Council where he has served in the same position under numerous leadership changes.
Historically, the Athletic Council has been a MAJOR force of positive influence for Fairfax County citizens through the years. Over the past three decades, the Athletic Council has forwarded many important recommendations to the Board of Supervisors on programs, policies, procedures, budget impacts, etc., and Steve was right in the middle of each one of those big projects, as a member on committees or in leadership positions! He promoted logic, consensus, authorship, and presentation strategies to name a few of his talents.
The Stephen A. McLaughlin Fairfax County Champions of Character Awards program honors youth, coaches, and parents for extraordinary service in pursuing victory with honor on and off the field of competition. Instituted by the Fairfax County Athletic Council, this program aims to support the ennobling tradition of amateur athletics in cultivating teamwork, leadership, good sportsmanship, and community service. 
Awards are presented to a male and female athlete, coach, and parent in each supervisory district for having demonstrated extraordinary service in the athletic community while modeling the basic traits of good character: Respect, Responsibility, Caring, Trustworthiness, Citizenship and Fairness 
Don't delay! Please visit the following link to submit your nominations.
We look forward to honoring our athletic community!"
