Robert Greenmun Award
History: Robert Greenmun was a deaf man who was a high school teacher at FSDB and a pioneer in the U.S. space program. Because of the type of hearing loss he had, he was involved in the study of the effects of weightlessness on man in space. He would often go to Cape Canaveral and other training areas used by NASA to be involved in the studies. His wife Roseland “Rosie” Greenmun established this award in his memory after his death.
Criteria: Students selected for this award should exemplify outstanding character, citizenship, and sportsmanship.

Terrell Acree Memorial Award
History: This award was established and funded by the FSDB Athletic Booster Club in April, 2000, and presented for the first time at the Athletic Awards Banquet in 2001. This award is in honor of Terrell Acree, a graduate of Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind, who died in an automobile accident only months after his graduation. Terrell’s character, dedication, and perseverance as a student and as an athlete garnered the admiration of all who knew him. In this respect, Terrell set the standard by which all FSDB students/athletes, those who came before and those who shall come after, shall be measured.
Criteria: The student selected for this award must: 1) be a male or female student who has been involved in the interscholastic athletic program for at least two years; 2) have at least a 2.5 cumulative grade point average; 3) have demonstrated an exemplary work ethic and a dedication to performing to the best of his/her ability in all aspects of their life; 4) have demonstrated exemplary character and leadership as a student (including in the dorm, if the recipient is a residential student), and as an athlete. This award does not have to be awarded every year; it is given only when there is a particular student deserving of this honor.
