Hiland Senior, Chupp, to Run for Golden Eagles

Kent State University at Tuscarawas is announcing the signing of a Hiland High School graduating senior to their cross country and track & field teams. On May 4, Alijah Chupp signed a Letter of Intent to run for the Kent State Tuscarawas Golden Eagles Cross Country and Track & Field Teams.

Chupp was a three-year letter winner for both the Hawks track & field and cross country teams. He also received a four-year academic letter award, four-year band award, three-year pep band award, the Scholar Student Athlete award, played in the jazz band and earned a superior rating in the Ohio Music Education Association district solo and ensemble competition.

“Our school and team is so excited to have Alijah as a member of our campus community,” said Mark Albaugh, Head Cross Country and Track & Field Coach for Kent State Tuscarawas. “He has certainly left quite a legacy of school and community service at Hiland High School and it will be very hard for someone to duplicate those feats. Alijah knows how to maximize his full potential as a member of his school’s athletic and service missions. He is a great addition to our campus and he will play a vital role in our success as we move forward.”

Kent State Tuscarawas is a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA).
