Hickory Flat’s Ty McGregor is being honored for his work as a standout student-athlete for the Rebels.
He is a 2019 Lindy Callahan Scholar Athlete.
From the MHSAA:
The honorees — one boy and one girl from each of the MHSAA’s eight geographical districts — were chosen for their academic accomplishments as well as their participation in high school athletics and extracurricular activities. The recipients were chosen by a committee made up of MHSAA partners and school administrators.
Each winner will receive a $1,500 college scholarship through the support of MHSAA partners like BankPlus, Mississippi Sports Medicine, C Spire and Polk’s Meat Products.
The 16 scholar-athletes will be honored April 8th in Jackson at the 24th annual banquet.
The awards were created to honor Mr. Lindy Callahan, a long-time athletic director and coach at Gulfport High School and a six-time Hall of Fame inductee.
