Fleming Island High School Wins National Fields of Excellence Award


National Fields of Excellence- Fleming Island High School -Fleming Island, FL 

This nationwide program recognizes hard working individuals, schools and communities for their dedication and effort in keeping fields and sports facilities looking their best. The extracurricular activities that are hosted on these fields go way beyond athletics. The opportunities that students gain from participation are opportunities that continue to give well past graduation. It’s no museum, but it is a lot like a hall of fame. It’s the space we’ve created to honor great work and to foster school pride and community spirit in the process.The unsung hero, the undefeated MVP. Day and night, they stand triumphant in the face of adversity. With the lights low and the bleachers emptied, they keep working, never relenting.To some it may just look like a patch of grass or a pile of dirt. But to the field of excellence winners, it's the backdrop to the story they're helping write.

At Pioneer, we commend the men and women who rise to the challenge, year after year, to produce exceptional and safe fields of play. In a year that challenged us all, Pioneer Athletics is honored to announce the winners of the 2020 Fields of Excellence award. When faced with the unknown, you adapted, you delivered and you exemplified excellence and dedication to your organization and communities in 2020.

Congratulations to the Golden Eagles of Fleming Island High School on being named a 2020 National Fields of Excellence recipient!
