Wakefield High School senior hockey player, Sophia Rossicone, was recently awarded a $500 Scholar Award from Wakefield Co-operative Bank at the team’s virtual end-of-season banquet. Sophia was selected by Coach Chrissy Weeden for her sportsmanship, leadership, and overall positive attitude on and off the ice.
“Sophia came to hockey day in and day out with such a positive attitude and always had a smile on her face,” said Weeden. “She is an unbelievable teammate who always supported each player on the team daily. I have the utmost respect for her always showing up wanting to improve over the past 5 years. She is an awesome kid and I feel lucky to have coached her for the past two years.”
Wakefield Co-operative Bank has given nearly $13,000 in Scholar Awards to Wakefield and Lynnfield students since 2015. Scholar Award recipients are selected by teachers and coaches for their passion, collaboration, leadership, enthusiasm and positive attitude.
