Southwest Guilford High First GCS School to Earn National Honor

Southwest Guilford High has the distinguished honor of becoming the first Guilford County Schools (GCS) high school to earn the Level 1 status on the National Federation of High School Associations (NFHS) Honor Roll.

The Level 1 status is designed to promote professional development for high school coaches by completing specific online education courses through the NFHS Learning Center. To attain this national recognition more than 90 percent of the coaches at Southwest completed the core course “Fundamentals of Coaching” along with three of the Learning Center’s most significant courses” “Concussion in Sports,” “Sudden Cardiac Arrest” and “Protecting Students from Abuse.”

“Seeing our coaches invest in making themselves better, more well-rounded coaches not only for themselves, but for their student-athletes is quite remarkable. I look forward to seeing more Guilford County Schools added to this list,” said Leigh Hebbard, director of athletics and driver’s education.

Southwest Guilford will receive a banner to display in their gym to highlight this recognition.
