Mark Mayers receives award for dedication to Grove City
Mark Mayers was instrumental in the efforts to install artificial turf on the baseball field and stadium at Grove City High School.
The Grove City resident has been recognized for his contributions by receiving an OHSAA Award for Sportsmanship, Ethics and Integrity, which is presented by OHSAA member schools.
Recognition is for a coach, teacher, administrator, booster or supporter who meets multiple selection criteria. Criteria include being a person within the school or community who supports and demonstrates positive values, contributes to student well-being, and is a positive role model.
In addition to leading the two projects in the field, Mayers also helped coordinate fundraising efforts.
“Mark was humble in not wanting recognition for these projects. However, without his coordination, dedication, passion and the pursuit of quality standards, these projects would not be realized to the level they have been, ”said Kris Sander, assistant director and sports director at Grove City.
“With this award, we hope that student-athletes, coaches and the school community recognize Mark for all he has done to ensure that these two facility projects are accomplished efficiently with the utmost attention to detail. . ”
Mayers was also a volunteer assistant coach for the baseball team last season.
Her son, Mike, is a Grove City graduate in 2010 who is pitching for the Los Angeles Angels.
