Deadline for Jack Cramer Athletics Award draws near

Time is running out to nominate someone for the 2016 Jack Cramer Ideals of Athletic Competition Award. The award is sponsored by the Columbus Parks and Recreation Department in memory of Jack Cramer, a former local athlete who died at the age of 33 in 1978.

Mark Jones, Director of Columbus Parks and Rec., says that this award is presented annually to a male and female senior high to adult-aged athlete, coach or sports organizer. He explains that all nominees must live or work in Bartholomew County. Last year’s winners were Ali Patberg in the female category and William “Bill” Stewart in the male category.

Information and nomination forms are available at the Donner Center. The deadline to submit nominations is Wednesday.
