Brady Adcock and Taylor Bugg were named Man and Woman of the Year respectively. Hudson Tucker was named Male Athlete of the Year, while Taylor Morris earned Female Athlete of the Year Honors. Jill Biediger and Adcock were honored for earning the highest GPA’s in the senior class. Sixty-four seniors were honored at the ceremony.

Adcock performed as a member of both the cross country and track and field teams. He earned First Team All-SAC honors in cross country.

His volunteer experience and achievements include serving on the Student-Athletic Advisory Committee, as President of the Business Honors Club, being a Presidential Intern and putting in over 320 volunteer hours as a Bailey Foundation Project Manager.

Bugg excelled as a member of the women’s swim team and is a part of four school-records in relay events.
