Andrel Anthony Jr.
Congratulations to all the award winners!
Zach is a cashier at H&H Mobil. He was nominated by his boss, Josh, who says while his quiet bravery may have gone unnoticed by many, it’s been greatly appreciated by him and Zach’s coworkers. Zach has worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic, diligently disinfecting the station and enforcing masks while continuing his regular duties of answering phones and helping customers both in the store and out on the drive. He’s known to their staff for helping in any way without complaint and for always going above and beyond. Recently engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Cassie, Zach’s unending cheerfulness and positive attitude have been the welcome relief his coworkers and customers have needed.
While he’s an overall cheerful person, Zach believes his coworkers, who are some of his best friends, make it easier to keep a positive attitude while working through COVID. His main goal is to approach each day as if nothing has changed other than precautions like wearing masks. He believes it’s important to his customers that they’re able to maintain a bit of normalcy in their day, like a trip to the gas station, and he’s happy to help. It’s people like Zach that keep our community going each day, and we thank him for his attitude and dedication!
Zach will receive a $100 gift card to Coral Gables East Lansing. Originally built in the 1920s as a roadhouse, Coral Gables hosted some of America’s most popular bands through the 30s and 40s before burning down in 1957. It was quickly rebuilt and transitioned to the rock ’n’ roll sound of the time, becoming a favorite spot of MSU students to meet up and dance. Today, Coral Gables is a family restaurant and banquet space known for its homemade specials and quality service. Under the same family ownership since 1968, Coral Gables often serves returning Spartans from near and far to reminisce on evenings spent dancing at Coral Gables, ordering their first drinks or meeting their future spouses!
EAST LANSING, Mich. – Jan. 13 – Three more Michigan High School Athletic Association non-contact Winter sports will be allowed to restart practice Saturday (Jan. 16) per the updated epidemic order announced today by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), while four Winter contact sports may begin indoor practices Saturday with non-contact activities.
Girls gymnastics, girls and boys bowling, and girls and boys swimming & diving, as “non-contact” sports, may also begin competition before the end of this month – swimming & diving Jan. 22 and gymnastics and bowling Jan. 25. Masks will be required of all participants except when they are actively participating in gymnastics and swimming & diving. Spectators will be capped at 100 persons in school gyms or 250 in stadiums and arenas, per MDHHS orders.
Basketball, competitive cheer, ice hockey and wrestling are considered “contact” sports and may begin non-contact practices Jan. 16, with their first competitions scheduled for Feb. 1. Because of the later start to competition schedules in those sports, the MHSAA will adjust its tournament dates for those four to conclude on later dates than what is currently scheduled – those dates will be announced later this week.
Girls and boys skiing, as an outdoor non-contact sport, was allowed to begin in December.
“We are glad to have three more sports join skiing in returning to full activity, but we understand the disappointment and frustration on the part of our athletes and coaches whose sports are not yet able to restart completely,” MHSAA Executive Director Mark Uyl said. “We will continue to adjust schedules to provide all of our winter teams as substantial an experience this season as possible, as part of our greater plan this school year to play all three seasons to conclusion.
“We have shown with our remaining Fall sports this month that our schools can participate safely, and we’re confident teams will continue to take all the appropriate precautions as we jump back into indoor Winter activities.”
Additionally, spring sports teams and fall teams not participating in the MDHHS rapid testing pilot program may begin four-player workouts and resume conditioning Jan. 16, but only with non-contact activities. Fall teams finishing their seasons in girls volleyball, Lower Peninsula girls swimming & diving and football have been able to do so by taking part in the MDHHS rapid testing pilot program for COVID-19; volleyball and swimming & diving will conclude with Finals this weekend, while football will finish Jan. 22-23 with 11-Player Finals.
