Everett High School senior Ignazio “Nate” Sanfilippo was presented with the prestigious 2013 Nichols College New England Principals Leadership Award. The generous scholarship is worth $15,000 and is renewable annually by the recipients, who must meet minimum grade point average and SAT requirements.
EHS Principal Erick Naumann nominated Sanfilippo because of success in the classroom, his strong character and dedication to his community. Sanfilippo’s easy-going personality and fun-loving nature made him a natural selection to serve as an EHS Student Ambassador. For the past two summers, he worked with the city’s youngsters as part of the Everett Police Department’s Junior Police Academy. He is also a coach in the Everett Pop Warner Football Program. A four-year member of the Everett High School football team, Sanfilippo is attending the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth in the fall.
“I couldn’t be happier for Nate,” said Superintendent of Schools Frederick F. Foresteire. “He is a first-class individual who has represented our school district and our city with dignity and honor.”
