PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
On Tuesday, May 7, BankRI teamed up with Providence College Men's Basketball Head Coach Ed Cooley to visit the Sophia Academy School located in Providence.
Cooley spoke to approximately 50 students regarding various topics, including the importance of an education, believing in oneself, aspiring to be the best person you can be and that all dreams can become a reality. In attendance were various Sopia Academy School administrators, Providence College Athletics staff members and the Friar mascot.

Founded in 2001 by the legendary Sister Mary Reilly, Sophia Academy is the only middle school in Providence focused specifically on girls, who face economic inequities and have a high risk of repeating the cycle of poverty that has ensnared many family members. By utilizing best practices in gender specific education, Sophia Academy fosters intellectual, moral, cultural, and social growth for its students (www.Sophia-Academy.org).
