The Ashley Derrickson / Five Star Player of the Game’ is named after each high school game broadcast on WKVI to recognize the player whose play during the game most inspired their teammates to be the best they could be.
The recognition is given in memory of Ashley Derrickson, a 2008 graduate of North Judson-San Pierre High School, who inspired the entire Kankakee Valley area with her courage, her bright smile, and her work on behalf of those she considered less fortunate as she battled cancer throughout her high school career. She was diagnosed with the disease early in her freshman year, but battled back to play in her junior year, before losing her battle with the disease on December 12, 2008
Five Star Food Centers are pleased to give this recognition in memory of a remarkable young lady who inspired everyone with whom she came in contact. Check this space after each game broadcast on WKVI for the “Ashley Derrickson/Five Star Player of the Game”.
