The New York Rangers NHL team gave a big gift to a survivor of the Sandy Hook School shooting.
Isaiah Márquez-Greene was eight when he survived, but his sister Ana, 6, died in the tragedy. Isaiah went to the Rangers final game of the season on Thursday and knew he was going to get a jersey from the captain, Jacob Trouba.
What the now 18-year-old didn’t expect was to get a scholarship to law school! Márquez-Greene was accepted into the University of Connecticut special law school program and what he got would definitely help make it happen. On the ice, Trouba presented Isaiah with a $60,000 Garden of Dreams Inspire Scholarship for college.
Isaiah is a hockey player and participated in Jr. Rangers camps and went to Rangers games through the Garden of Dreams Foundation. The foundation was proud to give Isaiah the gift and notes he was given the scholarship because of his academic performance, resilience, and leadership both on his hockey team and in the community.
The teen starts college at UConn in the fall.
