Northwood Announces November Hockey Mom of the Month Winner!
Congratulations to Jessica Patnesky, Northwood’s Youth Hockey Mom winner of November 2017. Jessica, a mother of two boys, resides in Canonsburg where she is the Business Manager for Canon-McMillan Middle School Ice Hockey Team and the Southpointe Rink Rats bantam team. As the Business Manager, you can find Jessica at the rink organizing and running fundraisers, working on score sheets, scheduling games and tournaments, and keeping track of all the player and coach documentation.
When not at the rink, Jessica is passionate about photography. Not only as her own business but as a way to give back to the community. Jessica is involved with The Tiny Footprints Project as a volunteer photographer. She offers free photographs to overwhelmed parents of premature babies in the NICU.
Jessica also wanted to bring a sense of volunteerism to her ice hockey community. She developed a plan for not only the players to give back but also a way to bring the two Canon-McMillan Middle School players/teams together as one unified team. The teams work together to go out and collect donations in the name of the Greater Washington County Food Bank. What a great way for the players to learn to give back to their community!
