Red Sox Service Scholarship Rewards Students For Community Service (Video)

It’s important for every student to get involved in community service from a young age. And the Boston Red Sox Foundation is committed to recognizing those students for doing so.

In 2010, Red Sox Foundation board member Linda Pizzuti Henry created the New England Red Sox Service Scholarship, a $1,000 college scholarship awarded to high school seniors for their outstanding community service work. The initiative began in New Hampshire, but the foundation is hoping to expand to public schools throughout all of New England.

Red Sox Foundation executive director Gena Borson joined the NESN broadcast during Friday’s “Red Sox Foundation Game Night” to talk about the exciting scholarship. Check it out in the video above and visit redsoxfoundation.org/nescholarship for more information.
