The Mike Nicholson Scholarship

Minh Vu receives the 2008 Nicholson Scholarship

Mike Nicholson loved soccer – watching it, playing it, coaching it.  He believed that youth soccer provides kids with opportunities to learn skills they won’t get anywhere else – opportunities to work successfully as part of a group, to volunteer to help those with less and to think “outside of” one’s self, to learn to think independently in support of the larger strategy, and to see the value in working for the greater good.  He would be very pleased and proud to know that a scholarship established in his memory will support a player who exemplifies the qualities that he believed are most important for our kids to develop:  responsibility, personal accountability, and good citizenship.
