Kinetic is excited to announce the creation of a special Scholar-Athlete award in partnership with WTVM News Leader 9. The award, given each week during the school year, will recognize outstanding students who succeed in balancing academic achievement as well as a commitment to athletics. The award is not limited to one sport. All are eligible. 

The recipient of the weekly Kinetic Credit Union Scholar-Athlete of the Week Award will be the subject of a television profile piece on WTVM News Leader 9 at 11PM each Tuesday, with a replay the next morning at 6AM. In addition, Kinetic Credit Union is pleased to fund a “member share account” for each weekly recipient in the amount of $25.00*. A custom plaque commemorating the scholar-athlete’s recognition that week will be presented by Kinetic Credit Union and WTVM Sports Director Dave Platta. The recipient will also receive more recognition during each week’s Sports Overtime high school football special each Friday night at 11:15PM on WTVM News Leader 9.
