AHN Junior Wins Sydney Wynne Volunteer of the Year Award

AHN Junior Wins Sydney Wynne Volunteer of the Year Award

Congratulations to AHN student Sophia Hoofnagle ’25 on being honored with the Sydney Wynne Volunteer of the Year Award! Sophia has dedicated three years to volunteering at Brandon Tennis For Fun, a free tennis clinic for special needs athletes. Her passion and dedication to coaching these athletes are truly inspiring.

This prestigious award, presented in memory of Coach Sydney Wynne, recognizes Sophia's exceptional service and profound impact on the community. It also serves as a touching tribute to Sydney, who attended the Academy of the Holy Names.

Tennis For Fun provides a unique opportunity for special needs athletes to enjoy tennis, learn foundational skills, and foster a sense of community and belonging. The program's emphasis on supporting athletes of all ages with intellectual disabilities, particularly those with Down Syndrome, and welcoming other special needs athletes who qualify for Special Olympics demonstrates the power of inclusivity and its positive influence on individuals and communities.

We deeply value service at the Academy and strive to instill these values in our students. Our dedication to community engagement empowers students to make meaningful contributions. Sophia's achievements are a shining example of how AHN students can positively influence the world around them.

We are immensely proud of Sophia's accomplishments and her unwavering dedication to helping others. Her recognition as the Sydney Wynne Volunteer of the Year is a testament to her hard work and the significance of service at AHN. Congratulations, Sophia, on representing AHN with excellence!
