Minnesota Wild Special Hockey is delighted to announce this year's recipients of our annual volunteer scholarship, Andrea Carlson and Jacob Wieland. Andrea and Jacob have both volunteered for Special Hockey for several years. About his experience with Special Hockey, Jacob says, "Volunteering with MSH has given me a new respect for those with disabilities and the hard work they put in for what they are passionate about." Andrea says, "Through MSH I have been given the opportunities to help many different people old and young with many different disabilities. I find joy in helping them enjoy a sport that they may otherwise not be able to participate in without Special Hockey."
Andrea will attend the University of Tampa in the fall, with hopes to attend law school in the future. Jacob will attend the University of Minnesota, College of Biological Sciences, and he hopes to go to medical school. We wish you both all the best!
To Andrea and Jacob, and to all of our wonderful volunteers, thank you for all that you do to make Minnesota Wild Special Hockey a success and a wonderful experience for all of our athletes. We look forward to seeing everyone on the ice next season!
