Jorge Zuccolotto is Making a Difference

May 18, 2007

Jorge Zuccolotto is the October 2007 recipient of the Healthy Community Initiative’s “Making a Difference Award.” The award celebrates those groups and individuals in the community who have a positive influence on Northfield youth.

Jorge is an exceptional community leader and positive role model for many Northfield youth. He volunteers time and energy to the Northfield Soccer Association and the Mexican adult soccer league, as well as serving as the head boys’ varsity soccer coach for the past six years. He has the unique ability to connect with youth regardless of social or economic barriers. A true mentor, Jorge encourages youth to be confident and strive to do their best.

“Jorge is loved for his loyalty, generosity of spirit, sense of fun and inexhaustible willingness to work for others,” said Simon Tyler, Assistant Boys’ Varsity Coach and friend. “In his capacity as a key soccer figure in Northfield, Jorge has broken down cultural barriers and brought people together in the Northfield community.”
