A member of the Carroll Senior High School coaching staff has earned a distinguished award.
Lady Dragons coach Nichole Gilley has been named one of 10 winners for the 2011 Verizon Community Leader Award. Gilley will be profiled on the NBC 5 “Inside High School Football” program during the fall and Verizon will donate $1,000 in the Gilley’s name to the school. Verizon plans to present the check to Gilley and present a preview of the segment at a pep rally or football game this fall.
Gilley, a Carroll graduate, is an assistant with boys/girls cross country and girls track and field. She also leads the Peer Assistance Leadership Program in Carroll ISD.
This honor is awarded to members of the high school sports community who are viewed as leaders in their activities at school, in the community and exhibit Verizon’s core values — integrity, respect, performance excellence and accountability.
