12/2/19: The Hume Award/Board Election
The Hume Award recognizes the most outstanding football player in Metro Nashville Public Schools. The winner is chosen based on the following criteria: sportsmanship, scholarship, individual performance and value to the team. Each Metro Nashville Public Schools has an opportunity to present a Hume Award nominee.
The Hume Award was inaugurated in 1944. During an evening of watching a football game between two high school teams at West High School, Mr. William Hume, a prominent Nashville attorney and civic leader, and Chairman of the City Board of Education, remarked to Mr. W.A. Bass, the then Superintendent of Nashville City Schools, that some recognition should be given to the fine young men participating in the game of football in the Nashville schools.
