As a show of support for our local community high school sports, Midwest Technical Institute (MTI) is proud to be an official sponsor of WAND TV’s Athlete of the Week.
The High School Athlete of the Week program will recognize players who are stars both on and off the field. Student athletes from the Central Illinois region and WAND TV viewing area will be nominated by coaches, athletic directors, sports fans, etc. for this honor. Winners of Athlete of the Week will be announced each Friday night during sports on Friday 10pm News beginning September 2021 through May 2022.
Do you know an athlete who excels both on and off the field? To nominate a student athlete, please send a detailed list of his/her accolades to Mark Pearson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
MTI will also feature the weekly winners here in this post, so be sure to check back.
