Danielle Coco touched many of us in such a special way. She taught us how to live and love, the value of family and friends, and the difference that a bright beautiful smile can make. She cherished her parents and brothers, Michael and Nicholas. Danielle enjoyed reading and writing poetry, as well as listening to music. As captain of the soccer team she lead by example. She found peace among children and aspired to be a teacher. To honor Danielle’s legacy the Danielle Marie Coco Memorial Scholarship was created in 2002 at Brewster High School in New York. It is awarded annually to a graduating senior who places family and friendships first, maintains a B+ or higher average, an active participant and leader in school activities, one who enjoys working with children and plans to continue with their education after high school.
