In 2017, a combination effort between the Knightstown Banner and the Athletic Department, the first annual Panther Pride Award was handed out.
The Panther Pride Award will be an award given to a community member, or Panther fan that embodies what it means to be a Knightstown Panther. The recipient of the Panther Pride Award will be honored every year during the winter season, and recognized for their dedication to Knightstown and thank them for always being a Panther at heart.
The first year the award was given to Mike Wyatt. Also in recognition of his hard work and dedication to the Panthers, this award was renamed the Mike Wyatt Panther Pride Award.
Due to weather in 2018, the award was unable to be given out.
Last night, the 2018 and 2019 Panther Pride Awards were handed out. Congratulations to Mark Haase (2018) and Larry White (2019) for all you do for Knightstown Athletics!
