Brody Page
Brody Page is a young man of exemplary character that embodies all of the characteristics of a recipient of this award. Brody is a five-sport athlete at Mayfield. He is a captain and first team all star in baseball, soccer and basketball. As a senior, he added cross country and track to his schedule and was an all star and sectional scorer in both. Brody is a member of the National Honor Society, Unified Bowling, MasterMinds, Key Club and any other club that he can fit into his schedule. None of these adequately tell someone who Brody is. Brody is first to volunteer whenever the opportunity presents itself. He has coached youth teams in basketball and soccer and volunteers with community clean ups. Brody is quick with a smile and a hello to everyone. He is always willing to help any student or competitor. Brody’s physical education teacher shared this when asked about Brody, “Brody is always leading by example in our PE classes. He always gives maximum effort and has a way of making every student feel like they are an important part of every activity. Brody sets a wonderful example for the underclassmen to follow. This student is a great combination of empathy, academic strength, leadership, and has the right perspective on sports.”

Madison Andrews
As a captain and multi-sport athlete, Madison consistently demonstrates how important physical education, being a leader, and continuing success, is to her. Madison was named captain of her junior varsity and varsity volleyball teams, as well as voted vice president of the Mayfield National Honor Society. When she isn’t on the volleyball court or softball field, Madison is managing the technical crew or assisting as the student director for the Mayfield Drama Club. She is a member of the Mayfield Backpack Club and Key Club, as well as the student representative for the Broadalbin-Perth Lions Club. Madison wears many hats and does so with pride. Madison consistently leads by example and with her voice. She is a positive role model for all of her peers, always willing to lend a helping hand. This was demonstrated when she welcomed a new student to be her partner in physical education class. Madison took this student under her wing. One year later and they are best friends. Madison is the epitome of what a leader should be.
