During Pickens High School’s varsity football game against Pendleton on Friday night at Bill Isaacs Field, the school announced its Scholar-Athletes of the Week for the week of Sept. 3. The winner of the male Scholar-Athlete of the Week was Tucker Perry (football), nominated by Mrs. Lisa Hiott. He is the son of Lori and David Kocher. The Female Scholar-Athlete of the Week was Jesi Turner (tennis), nominated by Dr. Ginger Hicks. She is the daughter of Bart and Mandy Turner. Scholar-Athletes are nominated by their teachers for demonstrating academic excellence in the classroom. The nominations are reviewed by a committee, and a male and female fall sports recipient will be recognized at each home game this season.
