New York Soccer News: This scholarship has been given out for over 30 years
The Eastern New York Youth Soccer Association (ENYYSA) is very pleased to announce that Deanna Schlott is receiving a Patricia Louise Masotto and Brenda Driscoll Scholarship. The Hopewell Junction resident is a member of the National Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society at John Jay High School. Deanna volunteers in tutoring foreign exchange students from Guatemala and is applying for a seal of biliteracy in New York State.
She received the Patricia D’Amato Exemplary Character and Citizenship Award last year. She wrote in her essay that she hopes “to become a Physician Assistant in dermatology after my schooling and coach soccer for town leagues.”
The Masotto/Driscoll Scholarship is based on academic and athletic excellence as well as community service. The scholarship’s namesakes, Patricia Louise Masotto and Brenda Driscoll, were best friends and top women’s soccer players from Massapequa, Long Island
We wish Deanna the best of luck in studying biology and playing soccer at Oneonta State.
