Student Athlete of the Year Banquet

KHQA celebrates scholastic and athletic excellence every year with the Student Athlete of the Year Banquet.

Watch video of the event held on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 above or click here.

The Student Athlete of the Week Program was created seven years ago to reflect the positive achievements of young adults in our society.

Each week a high school senior is selected to be the Student Athlete of the week. That student must be in good academic standing with a minimum GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must be a participant in an IHAA, IAHSAA or MSHSAA recognized sport.

Quincy Notre Dame's Kassidy Gengenbacher and Hannibal's Dalton Powell have been selected as the 2013 KHQA Student Athletes of the Year. For video interviews with the winners, click here.
