Congratulations to Sofia Giordano, the March winner of the SOAR Award.
Reason for Recognition
Sofia Giordano is most deserving of the SOAR award as both her character and academic performance are exemplary. Since freshman year, Sofia has soared through to fourth year Italian with honors. She consistently displays a natural desire to learn and is usually the one to ask a pointed question about the grammar, volunteer the correct answer or to assist other classmates. In her assignments, she will make an effort to use the latest grammatical structure and stretch her vocabulary to use the more challenging words. Her academic prowess is exceptional.
As an individual, Sofia always has a smile on her face and is a perennial optimist. She is never heard to complain and she recognizes that her hard work yields results and so she works diligently always putting forth her best. Sofia is also a kind hearted person who is respectful of all her classmates and therefore they see her as a positive key member of the class. Even though she is involved in sports and a part time job, she manages all of these responsibilities with such ease as to make it all look effortless. She is a consummate student, athlete and a truly genuine human being.
Sofia has been involved in many sports throughout her high school years including JV Field Hockey all four years, basketball and softball. She has also been a volunteer for Senior Olympics since her freshman year.
Outside school, Sofia has participated in Hike for Hope, Relay for Life, and Tobacco Stings as ways to serve her community. She has played softball and field hockey on numerous leagues and teams in town and in the USA Future Field Hockey Program.
She holds a job in the community as well.
