George Hill Receives Award for Community Service

 

George Hill is known by most as a dual-threat point guard, capable of creating offense on one end and stopping it on the other. But on Thursday afternoon at a packed luncheon, Hill was being honored for something besides his skills on the court: his actions off it.

George Hill因身為具有雙重威脅的控球後衛而聞名,他可以在創造進攻的同時又在防守端擋住對手。但在周四的一頓午餐便當後,Hill榮獲了一份獎項——並非因為他的技術,而是他在場外的活動

 

Many know Hill as the Hometown Hero because of his roots at Broad Ripple High School and IUPUI, but what some don't realize are the lengths Hill has gone to improve the lives of others growing up in his area.

很多人知道Hill是為家鄉英雄,因為他發跡於洪波高中與印第安納波里斯普渡大學;但不為人所知的是Hill至今為了這塊地區的人民謀福利的行為。

 

The Indiana Black Expo (IBE), a non-profit corporation dedicated to the social and economic advancement of African-American youth, took notice of Hill's charitable actions and gave him the Major Taylor Award, bestowed upon athletes or coaches for making significant contributions to youth and by modeling excellence. The presenter of the award, Greg Wilson, the board chair of the IBE, spoke glowingly of Hill's charitable organization, George Hill Rising Stars.

一個名為印第安納黑人博覽會(IBE),為了提升非裔美國青年的社經地位的非營利組織,注意到Hill的慈善行動並給予了他Major Taylor獎,一個為了對於青少年有重大貢獻以及身為傑出楷模的運動員或教練而頒發的獎項。該獎項的主持人同時也是IBE董事會主席的Greg Wilson,讚揚了Hill的慈善組織,「George Hill明日之星」。

 

"George Hill Rising Stars is dedicated to producing strong, caring, educated and uplifting citizens," Wilson explained. "And (Hill) has taken the lead in showing the commitment and tenacity needed for changing the lives of the young and the old in our community."

Wilson解釋:「George Hill明日之星致力於培養有體魄、有愛心、有教養並且令人為之振奮的市民。而Hill則是以身作則展現給社區的年輕人與老人做出改變需要的投入與堅持。

 

Past recipients of the Major Taylor award—named for Marshall W. "Major" Taylor, an African-American cyclist who competed in the late 1800's—include Tamika Catchings, Tony Dungy, Jerry Rice, Jackie Joyner-Kersee, and Ray Crowe.

曾榮獲Major Taylor獎——以Marshall W. 「市長」Taylor,一位十九世紀末非裔美國單車手命名的獎項的前輩,包含了Tamika Catchings(WNBA印第安納狂熱隊球員)、Tony Dungy(NBC美式足球之夜的分析員,前NFL球員及教練)、Jerry Rice(前NFL球員、NFL百大巨星之一)、Jackie Joyner-Kersee(前美國田徑七項全能與跳遠選手,曾克服嚴重氣喘)與Ray Crowe(已故的印第安納籃球教練與教育家,曾在1968年入選印城籃球名人堂)。

 

As Hill approached the podium and accepted the award, he explained that he was unable to write a speech, because he thought it would be more meaningful if it were off the top of his head.

當Hill走向頒獎台領獎的時候,他表示自己沒辦法寫一篇感言,因為他覺得能夠在預料之外獲得這個獎會讓它顯得更有意義。
