Osceola Creek Middle School recently announced the recipients of the February Scholar-Athlete Award. The award is sponsored by the School Police and honors varsity athletes who also excel in academics, effort, behavior and school spirit, and serve as role models for others.
Boys basketball honored Cory Dillon, 13, an eighth grader. “Corey loves to compete and works hard at becoming the best,” coach Henry Haston said. “Corey has demonstrated hard work and dedication both in the classroom, as well as athletics.”
Dillon, who also runs track, is carrying a 2.93 GPA and is undecided on a college. He would like a career in basketball.
Aneeshea Cason, 12, a seventh grader who is home-schooled, was honored in girls basketball. “It is with great pleasure that I nominate Aneeshea Cason for Scholar Athlete of the Month,” coach Judy DeCosta said. “As a member of the Osceola Creek Middle School girls basketball team and the Wellington Wolves travel basketball team, she has demonstrated hard work, leadership and determination. Ms. Cason is a full-time FLVS student with a high school GPA of 4.50. She is a member of the National Achievers Society and the Youth Orchestra of Palm Beach County. In her free time, Aneeshea volunteers at the Acreage library and enjoys reading. Most importantly, she strives for excellence on and off the court, and demonstrates outstanding sportsmanship and kindness toward others.”
Girls soccer honored Savanna Rallo, 14, an eighth grader carrying a 4.16 GPA.
“Savanna Rallo is an outstanding student athlete,” coach Tony Bugeja said. “She is true leader on and off the field. When she came to us as a sixth grader, she was an automatic positive impact to our soccer program. We look forward to watching Savanna play college soccer one day.”
Rallo is a member of the school’s volleyball team and the National Junior Honor Society, as well as being a representative on the student council. She is undecided on a college, but is set on a career as an architect.
Supporting the program are Subway, Domino’s Pizza, McDonalds, the Loxahatchee Ice Cream Company, and Burger King, located at Seminole Pratt Whitney Road and Orange Blvd., and Dairy Queen at Royal Palm Beach and Okeechobee boulevards, which donated free food coupons.
