The HIGH 5 program exists because of the dedication of our volunteers, specifically our buddies. Each weekend, despite the demands on the time of a teenager, they show up ready to have a great time with HIGH 5 players. We are so proud of the many buddies who have helped this program grow.
During the spring 2016 season, we announced our first-ever Buddy Scholarship for a graduating senior. We asked one simple question: "What does HIGH 5 mean to you?" A small committee made up of parents, HIGH 5 directors and GEYA board members selected the winner, and the award was presented at our last HIGH 5 session.
