Shining Stars

Shining Stars

Shining Stars is a program created by the Westmoreland Sports Network and Smail Kia in Greensburg to recognize and support Westmoreland County student-athletes whose academics, community and athletic excellence shines the brightest. Two teams will be chosen as Shining Stars each season throughout the year with each receiving funding to help their booster programs. This will be determined by the team(s) with the highest cumulative grade point average, most community service hours completed and conference, district, state championships, etc.
