To be a Letter Sweater Girl is the highest honor bestowed upon an athlete at McGehee. The recipient must be a key varsity player excelling in more than one sport and a leader to the team. She must have attended all practices and all competitions. In rare instances a one-sport specialist may be considered if she has been named to several special teams that recognize her as one of the outstanding players in the state and if she has made contributions as a key varsity member in more than one season. The recipients are selected by present sweater girls and coaches.
