The Better Neighbor: Emily Jefferds, Scarborough
Scarborough High junior Emily Jefferds doesn't let diabetes keep her from success in softball and basketball.

...Jefferds, who also plays shooting guard in basketball, was honored as The Better Neighbor at the Varsity Maine Awards.

“When I think of Emily, I just smile,” said Tom Griffin, Scarborough’s softball coach, who also taught Jefferds in middle school. “Just a wonderful spirit about her, an absolute joy to be around.”

Griffin said Jefferds is a solid hitter who is starting to drive the ball more this year and is “probably the most improved kid from last year to this year.”

After every class and practice, he said, Jefferds made a point to say thank you. Dealing with diabetes helped her mature. ... -neighbor/
