The inaugural Honor #25 Team awards ceremony was overshadowed by Covid-19. No in-person event occurred and sadly no official team photo was taken. Instead, Honor #25 made the best of an unpleasant circumstance & celebrated via Zoom. This team will always be very special. Each team member knew Jon Jon personally and appreciated his love of life and his never-ending commitment to friendship and teamsmanship.
Connor Trumpy, Honor #25 Scholarship Winner
Connor was a fixture in Camp Hill athletics and played for the football, basketball and track teams. Connor's coaches valued his leadership and motivational attitude which allowed him to push teammates to be their very best. Connor's response to what it meant to be a Camp Hill athlete was short, sweet, and to the point - "being with my best friends all the time." Connor, without a doubt, exemplifies the Honor #25 spirit and we are so proud of him being the inaugural scholarship winner. Memories of Connor and Jon Jon as the "twin towers" in basketball will never be forgotten.
Additional Team Members: Erik Blanton, Greg LaBine, Frank Shartle, Allison Confair (not pictured) and Ava Spitzer (not pictured)

Jackson Thompson, Honor #25 Scholarship Winner
Jackson played baseball, basketball and golf during his high school career. While a major contributor in all three sports, he excelled at baseball and is continuing his love for the game at Campbell University, a D1 program that is lucky to have Jackson. Coaches offered ringing endorsements about Jackson, describing him as “being at his best when his best is needed,” consistently displaying sportsmanship and serving as an excellent role model. One of Jackson’s favorite Camp Hill memories was "defeating Trinity, a major Camp Hill Rival, at a home basketball game his freshmen year and having Jon Jon by his side to celebrate the victory.” Congratulations Jackson on a well-deserved recognition.
Additional Team Members: Emma Guerin, Maya Forte, Anna Long & Andrew Spaan
Ducky Mueller, Honor #25 Scholarship Winner
Ducky played soccer and tennis during his high school career and is studying at Slippery Rock University. His goal is to become a physical education teacher and the qualities that landed him the scholarship will serve him well in this capacity. Ducky's coaches shared that he was "selfless player, sacrificing a lot individually, while being vital tot he team's success" and that he "mastered that fine line of balancing playing hard and having fun with his teammates and doing anything for anyone on the team which is a great attribute to have in a player." One of Ducky's favorite Camp Hill memories is time spent at the Bucknell Team Soccer camps. He shared that the good memories are not necessarily the ones on the field; he loved even more the bonding time with his friends and building a family within the group.
