The Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) has announced the high school students across the state who have earned 2008 academic all-state awards for the fall sports seasons.
This program recognizes students who have been nominated by their schools, based on leadership and scholarship guidelines.
A nominated student must be a varsity player or organizational leader who has played a significant role on the team or in the organizational activity that season.
The student must also have a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) in all curricular subjects of 3.7 on a 4.0 scale.
Schools can nominate two students for each NSAA-sponsored activity offered that season.
For the fall sports seasons, the following students at Chase County Schools have received the honor:
Football—Schyler Heathers, Kerry Swanson.
Cross country—Jilanne German.
Softball—Shanna Carter, Dee Dee Pursley.
Volleyball—Paula Leibbrandt, Morgan Strand.
