Bill and Wilma Wickliff – The Wickliff Athletic Sportsmanship Award
There wasn’t a home New Palestine High School sporting event where you didn’t see Bill and Wilma Wickliff. Their enthusiasm and spirited support of the home team was evident in their regular attendance and vocal support. Their children, Jay and Linda, decided to create a permanent fund at the Community Foundation from which awards will be given perpetually. The tradition of awarding the Wickliff Athletic Sportsmanship Award will continue by recognizing one male and one female student who have participated in a minimum of one sport their senior year of high school and have exhibited good sportsmanship, work ethic, mental attitude and teamwork. Qualifying students must be nominated by the Athletic Director.
