The WooSox Scholars program provides middle school students with college scholarships to show them that their dreams are valid-- and funded.
Class of 2021
In July 2021, in front of a crowd of cheering fans, four Worcester Public Schools eighth-graders, the Class of 2021, stepped onto the field accompanied by Worcester Red Sox players and executives, as well as Worcester Public Schools representatives. From left to right, the 2021 WooSox Scholars are Helene Sanchez Navidad, Dalton Le, Jakayla Edmonds Weekes, and Kasie Vuong.
Our hope is that this early recognition of young students' potential as learners and leaders will help shield them from the dangerous temptations of adolescent life. We believe in our children—and in their dreams. That’s why we’ve invested $40,000 into the college funds of local students thus far.
