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 Sports Athlete of the Week program will recognize players who are star 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. Winner of Athlete of the Week will be announced each Friday night during sports on Friday 10pm News by Sports Director Gordon Voit beginning October 2020 through May 2021.
Do you know an athlete who excels both on and off the field? To nominate a student athlete (must currently be in high school) please send a detailed list of his/her accolades to Gordon Voit on Facebook or via email at Gordon.Voit@wandtv.com.
MTI will also feature the weekly winners here in this post, so be sure to check back.
