On April 2, 2012 the Office of School Wellness Programs and CHAMPS presented Captain Manuel Rivera, Jr. School (10X279) with the first annual “Frank Garcia, Jr. Flag Football Memorial Award”.
The “Frank Garcia, Jr. Flag Football Memorial Award” was created to honor our deceased friend and colleague Frank Garcia, Jr. The Frank Garcia, Jr. Flag Football Memorial Award will be given each year to the CHAMPS flag football team that best demonstrates the CHAMPS characteristics that Frank tirelessly promoted: Cooperative, Healthy, Active, Motivated, Positive Students for life.
Captain Manuel Rivera, Jr. School’s principal James Waslawski, along with Coaches Michael Rosario, Clifford Jean and the students of the 10X279 flag football team, were the perfect choice as the inaugural winners of this award.
