CLARY MEDAL WINNERS NAMED FOR NORTH CAROLINA HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
Salisbury's Wear, Pamlico's Moye Earn Prestigious Honor
CHAPEL HILL – Susie Wear of Salisbury High School and Greg Moye of Pamlico County High School have been named the recipients of the Clary Medals awarded by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association.
The two outstanding student-athletes will be recognized at the NCHSAA’s Annual Meeting on May 1 at the Dean E. Smith Center on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The Clary Medal is made possible through the generosity of the Eddie and Jo Allison Smith Family Foundation through the NCHSAA Endowment. It annually recognizes an outstanding male and female student-athlete who will each receive a $1,000 scholarship to further his or her education at the college level.
To be eligible for the award, a student must be a senior at an NCHSAA member school, participate on at least two athletic teams, maintain at least a 3.2 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale, and demonstrate excellence in athletic participation, extra-curricular activities and community service.
Wear played three different sports all four years at Salisbury, including tennis, swimming and soccer, earning all-conference honors in all three while serving as co-captain of all three squads. She played number-one singles on the tennis team that won the NCHSAA state 2-A team title, and she was a member of the doubles team that earned a state championship.
Vice-president of the National Honor Society at Salisbury, Wear was selected to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum on Medicine as well as the North Carolina Youth Legislative Assembly in Raleigh. A member of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, she has gone on a mission trip to Mexico with her church and organized a tennis program for at-risk children in the community.
Moye has been a three-sport athlete at Pamlico, competing in football, wrestling and baseball. He has served as a co-captain in all three sports and earned all-conference honors in football and baseball, including being the football team MVP as a junior. A serious automobile accident just prior to the first football game last August kept him out for a while but he battled back from injuries to start at middle linebacker in the final two games of the regular season.
A Wendy’s High School Heisman nominee from Pamlico, Moye was an NCHSAA Heart of a Champion recipient in 2007.
The award is in memory of Wilburn Columbus Clary, a member of the NCHSAA Hall of Fame who was an outstanding coach and game official. He served as the executive secretary of the old Western North Carolina High School Activities Association from 1948 through 1977, when its schools joined the NCHSAA. Clary was also the first collegiate football official to be inducted into the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame.
“Both Susie and Greg are exemplary citizens and student-athletes,” said Charlie Adams, executive director of the NCHSAA. “They are outstanding selections for the Clary Medals, which we believe is becoming one of the top awards the NCHSAA can present to a student.”
The inaugural winners of the award were Nicole Harris of North Wilkes and Brad Hardee of South Caldwell, and the 2007 winners included Lauren White of North Mecklenburg and Colby Meador of Rockingham County.
