Guy Roofing, Carolina Panthers accepting nominations for High School Community Captains Awards
Nominations are now being accepted for the fifth annual High School Community Captains Awards, a program sponsored by Guy Roofing and the Carolina Panthers that recognizes the leadership of 10 exemplary high school students in South Carolina and North Carolina.
Ten Community Captains will be selected based on academic merit, athletic excellence and community involvement. Winners are recognized during a pre-game, on-field presentation at Bank of America Stadium. The application period runs through Sept. 15, 2021.
This year’s awards ceremony will take place on Nov. 7 when the Panthers host the New England Patriots at Bank of America Stadium. Winners receive a $500 gift for their school’s athletic program and a Gameday Experience package that includes tickets and pre-game field passes.
“The Community Captains program is a rewarding way for us to highlight hardworking, motivated, compassionate students who put in the work – on the field, in the classroom and in their communities,” said Guy Roofing Vice President Jeff Guy. “To celebrate their achievements and honor them alongside the Carolina Panthers is a powerful reminder that, through hard work and commitment, anything is possible.”
Carolina Panthers Director of Community Relations Riley Fields added, “The Carolina Panthers are pleased to partner with Guy Roofing for the High School Community Captain program. The impact made by these outstanding student-athletes in the classroom, on the field and in their communities sets a standard for others to follow. We are honored to recognize their many contributions they make to their communities.”
