The Port Washington Soccer Club has presented Schreiber High School graduate and captain of the Port Washington Blue Knights, Cameron Boroumand, with the annual $1,000 Joe Cohen Scholarship.
The award, which has been presented annually for over 10 years, was established by the Port Washington Soccer Club to honor Joseph Cohen, a gifted athlete who attended college on a soccer scholarship. He went on to achieve outstanding success, first academically, and then in his professional life. He gave his time fully and with great heart to innumerable charitable endeavors.
“I can’t think of a more deserving student athlete,” said Dan Brotman, vice president, competition, for the Port Washington Soccer Club. “Cameron was dedicated to both the Blue Knights and the Schreiber Boys Varsity team, as well as the community as a Port Washington special needs soccer volunteer. With his character and continued academic achievements at Cornell, I have no doubt that he will follow Joseph Cohen, and become a tremendous success in life.”
The $1000 scholarship is presented annually to the graduating male or female senior varsity soccer player with the highest scholastic average, who has consistently played for the Port Washington Soccer Club.
