The David McBride Award for Outstanding Academics

David McBride was an English teacher and first district coordinator of the "early release" program at  Summit High School.  Together with the founders of the Summit Race Team, David devised and  oversaw the program -- the first of its kind -- wherein students could substitute ski training for PE credit. Within the program, coaches were CHAASA trained and certified, grades were given, and kids had to maintain greater than a 75% in all classes (beyond the typical eligibility) to participate.  This award is for 1 athlete only that presents high scholastic achievement, maintaining outstanding academics throughout the year. Specifically, it is for the student-athlete with the highest GPA of all enrolled.
