Congratulations to Molly Dion, Plymouth Rock Assurance and 98.5 The Sports Hub’s first High School Heroes winner! Marshall & Diggins Insurance is pleased to participate in this fantastic program that rewards local student leaders!
Molly hails from Jefferson, Massachusetts, and is a talented varsity lacrosse player who enjoys “the challenge of maintaining my grades while working hard for my team and competing at a high level,” she says.
The soon-to-be-senior at Wachusett Regional High School hopes to use her $1,000 scholarship to help achieve her goal of becoming a baker and pastry chef. Molly’s favorite subjects are math and—surprise, surprise—her restaurant management class, where her team finished second in a state competition this year.
Molly has mastered the intricacies of time management at an early age, saying that she has to “make sure I have time to study and get my homework done but be at [lacrosse] practice every day and find time to work out on my own in the off-season.” Whew!
Off the field and besides her studies, Molly has a part-time job at a local bakery. She also volunteered at a food pantry last summer.
Molly’s advice to other high school athletes—and potential future Plymouth Rock High School Heroes: “Try hard in everything you do. Always have fun. It’s not worth it if you aren’t having fun because it’s a lot of hard work and sacrifice.”
Well said, Molly.
Congratulations from everyone at Plymouth Rock. Keep up the hard work and have fun!
