SCH’s Brown earns Manion/Crescenz Award
Springside Chestnut Hill Academy senior Bella Brown is one of two recipients of the 2022 First Lieutenant Travis Manion & Corporal Michael Crescenz Award. The award will be presented by members of the Manion and Crescenz families at halftime of the Army-Navy Cup
Friday at Subaru Park. The service academies meet for their 11th annual men's soccer game at 7 p.m. in Chester.
This award is given every year to two high school aged soccer players, one girl and one boy, who exemplify the spirit of Manion and Crescenz, who gave their lives in service to their country. These two men lived by the motto “If Not Me, Then Who…” throughout their lives.
“I'm really excited,” Brown said. “I'm really grateful for receiving this award. It touches my heart the most because my dad is a part of law enforcement and he's taught me so much. It's really special for me. He's taught me to respect higher authorities and always stand up for myself and work hard for what I want.
