Scholarship spotlight


Last year, Cecilia received an Off the Sideline scholarship to play on a soccer team for the first time. She immediately took to the sport, and as a sixth grader currently plays on the HB Lee Middle School team. For her birthday this year, staff at community partner Volunteers of America gifted her with her very first soccer ball. Way to go, Cecilia!
