Chewelah's Jeanneret receives the Jace Malek Award For Toughness
Just over four years ago we lost our friend Jace Malek to cancer. The Idaho Vandal and West Valley Eagle spent his final months inspiring others by showing incredible strength and toughness. Before he passed, Jace gave us permission to honor him every year by giving out the Jace Malek Award for toughness to someone involved in high school sports who shows the same qualities Jace did. We are honored to give the award for the 5th time tonight, to Jake Jeanneret of Chewelah.
