On Sunday, July 3rd, Board member George Angulo passed away. George was a longtime volunteer with SYC serving as Coach, Deputy Commissioner, and SYC Board of Directors since 2005.
The following is a quote from George that speaks to his love of youth sports. “I have a strong belief that children should participate in youth sports for discipline, sportsmanship, team building, and overall development. As an SYC board member, I wish to commit my time and resources to improve SYC access and participation, and to support the volunteers and families within the Springfield/South County Youth Club community."
As Chris Spera, SYC president says, “George was a valued friend and an important member of our club - his calm demeanor, business sense, leadership and insight will be missed by SYC.”
SYC is accepting contributions to the SYC “George Angulo Scholarship Award” fund where a $1,000 scholarship is awarded annually to a high school senior with a history of community volunteerism.
