Nominated By Assistant Principal, Greg McDonald.
Sofia has had to deal with many difficulties as a young person growing up. None has been more difficult than losing her father when she was in 6th grade. Her dad was her world and she wanted to be like him in many ways, including being an excellent drummer. After his death, her world was turned upside down. She did not give into the sadness, however, and chooses to have a positive outlook on life. She gives energy and passion to the people around her. Sofia has been active in Student Council and the group No Place For Hate. She works as a Peer Tutor, is a leader in the school and does her best to inspire and include anyone who needs a friend. Sofia plans to attend the Women’s Empowerment Conference again this year. Mr. McDonald says that Sofia is a little ball of energy and just sitting in a room with her will bring a smile to your face.
