championships while displaying award-winning sportsmanship and
character. We thank you for your support as we continue to

Positive Athlete Program
High School has partnered with Positive Athlete to begin a new
program here at Pope. Positive Athlete celebrates the
positive events in high school athletes’ lives and recognizes
them through a statewide banquet. This program was started
by Scott Pederson and Hines Ward in the Pittsburgh area.
This program is being implemented in the metro-Atlanta area this
year and Pope High School is leading the effort to implement the
Positive Athlete program. Not only will our students be
recognized on the state leave, but we have decided to implement
this program within the Pope community. It is our desire
to see all the positive student-athletes be elevated within our
community and get the praise they deserve for their
accomplishments beyond the scoreboard.
