The Swope, Rodante Vanguard Award

The Swope, Rodante Vanguard Award, founded in 2011, recognizes outstanding high school student athletes and coaches throughout Hillsborough County. The award program is proud to celebrate these students and coaches who work with integrity and dedication in an effort to have a positive impact on our community.

Each month of the school year, the award program selects a Student Athlete of the Month who excels in academics, athletics and in the community. The winner is presented with an award as well as a $1,000 check to be donated to the school’s athletic department on the student’s behalf.

At the end of every school year, The Swope, Rodante Vanguard Award hosts the End of the Year Awards Banquet, a celebratory event for student athletes, coaches, city officials and families to enjoy. During the ceremony, one overall Student Athlete MVP is awarded.

That student receives a special gift to use during college. The selection committee also recognizes two coaches (one male and one female) with the Coach of the Year Award, honoring their outstanding contributions over the previous year. Each winning coach receives a $1,000 check.

We encourage members of the community to make a difference by nominating a Hillsborough County student athlete or coach.
