Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Board of Education Presents Rebel Spirit Award to Grant Decker


The Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Board of Education presented Grant Decker with the Rebel Spirit Award during the 2011 Varsity Sports Awards Banquet. The BOE established the Rebel Spirit Award as a way to acknowledge and recognize individuals or groups who, through their own actions, demonstrate outstanding effort and leadership in the display of Rebel pride and spirit, in school or through community efforts. A long-standing coach for the APW School District, Decker was selected for helping to instill in APW youth a sense of leadership, pride and discipline. APW BOE member Ernie Peters spoke during the award’s presentation ceremony about Decker’s loyalty to the APW School District, about his ability to motivate students and shared one of his favorite Grant Decker quotes: “If you don’t have discipline, you don’t have anything.” Decker is pictured above with, from left to right: current BOE members Ernie Peters and Marie Radley, past BOE member Elmer Plantz, APW Athletic Director Bert Conklin, BOE president Michael Hale, Sr., and APW Superintendent of Schools Gerry Hudson.
