Sending heartfelt congratulations to New Westminster Secondary School (NWSS) senior Nick Adomat, recent recipient of the annual Sidoo Family Giving award!
The $1500 SFG Scholarship is awarded to the NWSS graduating senior football player who demonstrates academic and athletic achievement, as well as leadership and perseverance. David and Manjy Sidoo established the scholarship with the goal of helping student athletes who may not otherwise be able to afford to attend university.
NWSS Football Program Head Coach, Farhan Lalji, comments on Nick’s contributions to the team, “On the field, Nick graded out as our best linemen this season as he rarely missed an assignment. He was a tremendous leader and in many respects was like having another coach on the field. He respectfully and positively forces us as coaches to constantly consider different methods for developing our program.”
Coach Lalji continues, “Nick was recently selected as our program’s scholar-athlete and received the Sidoo Family Scholarship for his athletic and academic achievement, perseverance and citizenship. He was also recognized provincially, earning one of nine BCSSFA scholarships for similar criteria to the above award.”
Off the field, Nick excelled in academics, earning a 93% average in a full academic International Baccalaureate courseload in his senior year. In the community, Nick tutors at-risk kids, reads to elementary school children, assists with senior citizens, participates in environmental clean up, helps with Hyack Festival Association events, and many other activities that the NWSS football program is involved with throughout the city of New Westminster.
Sidoo Family Giving is proud to contribute to Nick’s future education as he attends McGill University in September 2012.
