The Wismer Foundation and the Wismer Award for High School Coaching Excellence Selection Committee are delighted to announce this year's five finalists for the Award. All five nominees are teachers and coaches and long time contributors to the Hamilton high school coaching scene. Each is a dedicated, innovative, and outstanding member of their respective school board and the Hamilton community. This year’s five finalists for the 2nd Annual Wismer Award for High School Coaching Excellence are:
Brad Bonitatibus – St. Jean de Brebeuf Frank Hayes – Delta Sean Kiely – St. Mary's Kevin Monaco – St. Mary’s, and Paul Pendakis – Saltfleet
The Wismer Foundation’s Selection Committee is proud and delighted that this year's nominees are once again, an exceptional group of worthy coaches. The most pleasing and impressive credential, common to all five finalists, is their focus on the student athlete. To a person, each of the five finalists exemplifies, above all, that the student athlete really matters to them and that they care deeply about each one of them.
