The criteria for the award is the AD must be actively involved in GMC business/tournaments and have not received the recognition in the last five years. It is the first time Pritchard, who has served the GMC for 32 years, has been so honored. Buffalino said that Pritchard was recognized for his “longevity, integrity and the fact that he always does the right thing.”
Pritchard is the sport chairperson for the GMC cross-country, indoor and outdoor track and field championship meets as well as the appointed vice-president for the Gold Division and a member of the newly established Hall of Fame committee. He will be honored at the GMC Scholar-Athlete dinner on June 3 at 7 p.m. at the Pines Manor in Edison.
