Craig T. White was a special education teacher, coach and athletic director at Old Mill High School. Throughout his career he personally exhibited, and expected of his athletes, the highest standards of character, integrity and service to those in need. He was a member of the Broadneck community as well, commuting to Old Mill from his home here on the Peninsula. Craig lost a heroic battle with a rare melanoma in 2015. During even the worst days of his sickness he came to work with a smile on his face, gave his coaches and athletes a positive role model to look up to and always looked for opportunities to help others lighten their load. His legacy lives on in the hearts of all the teachers, coaches and athletes who are inspired to face every day with the same courage, compassion and joy they saw in Craig during his life.
In response to Craig’s shining example, the athletic directors of Anne Arundel County Public Schools commissioned a Craig T. White Sportsmanship and Service Award to be given out by every high school each year. The teams recognized with this award have demonstrated the same outstanding characteristics of on-field sportsmanship and off-field service that were the cornerstones of Craig’s philosophy. The Student Athletic Leadership Committee was presented with the accomplishments of each of this year’s teams and selected the finalists for the award. The Broadneck Athletics Department is proud to recognize this year’s winners, congratulates them on achieving such a high level of character and thanks them for their service to the community.
