Red Sox honor recent VUHS grad

BOSTON — Sophia Parker of Vergennes was recognized as a recipient of the Vermont Red Sox Service Scholarship during a pregame ceremony at Fenway Park before the Red Sox-White Sox game on Aug. 5. The program awarded students from public high schools across Vermont with $1,000 scholarships towards their college education based on academic performance, financial aid eligibility, and demonstrated community service.
Parker graduated from Vergennes Union High School this past June. After she was recognized by the Addison Independent as a Student of the Week, Parker told the newspaper that she was headed to the University of Vermont for college.
The scholarship recipients were congratulated on the field at Fenway Park by Red Sox President & CEO Sam Kennedy and Red Sox Executive Vice President Troup Parkinson. Other dignitaries were also on hand for the ceremony.
