The Kenowa Hills High School Athletic Department in conjunction with Home Team Grill and Sobie Meats have started an Athlete of the Month Award. This award will honor one male and one female student athlete from their respective teams. These student athletes are nominated by coaches and voted for by a panel of administrators, teachers, and peers. The recipients of this award must also be standouts in the classroom and in the community.
