Home / News / NEO Foundation Announces Sam Wells Soccer Endowment

 

The NEO Development Foundation is pleased to announce a scholarship had been dedicated in the name of the late Sam Wells, a physical sciences teacher and soccer coach while at NEO. Wells, or “Doc Rock” as he was known to students, taught physical science and geology at NEO from 1965 until 2007. He also coached the NEO soccer team for two years in the late 1970s. In 1980, he founded what is now the Miami Regional Soccer Association.

The scholarship had been designated to assist an NEO soccer player who is in need of financial assistance. Each year, the Norse and Lady Norse soccer coaches will select one recipient for the $500 award. As an endowed scholarship, the funds will be invested to ensure the continuation of the Samuel Wells Jr., Scholarship offered through the NEO  Foundation.
