Our 21st season of Upward Basketball and Cheerleading came to a spectacular close on Sunday evening, February 25 with our Awards Night Celebration. 240 players, 25 cheerleaders and many of the parents, grandparents and friends packed our sanctuary for a fantastic evening of fun and inspiration.
FCA Area Director and SMBC friend, Steve Wigginton showed off his ball handling skills and shared the message of God’s love and grace. Krista Johnson, Rob Shrader and our own Emily Thompson received Game Ball Awards in recognition of outstanding commitment to Upward. Dan Case, retiring after 21 years of serving side by side with David Garrard, received a special service award presented by our league as well as by Upward National. David Garrard was also recognized and honored for his leadership.
