For their work getting out the good word on sportsmanship and officials recruitment, respectively, Rockford and Canton were among those honored this spring with Michigan Student Broadcast Awards from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters Foundation.

The MHSAA sponsors awards for Sports Public Service Announcement for both TV and radio. Rockford’s Payton Longeliere, Mylei Cullivan and Lindsay Carpenter won the TV category with “Sportsmanship – It’s Not That Hard” shown below:
