Lewisville Chamber Awards | February 2021
STUDENT OF THE MONTH | REAUNNA FLETCHER
DeLay Middle School 8th-grader Reaunna Fletcher was recognized as the Lewisville Chamber/Cross Timbers Family YMCA February Student of the Month. According to Reaunna’s teachers, she is the epitome of a servant leader with a servant’s heart. Her charismatic and bubbly personality always lights up whatever room she enters, and you never know when she is having a down day. Reaunna is always looking to build up others and find the positive in every situation. She often checks in on her peers, teachers, and any staff member she can assist and support. She serves on the DeLay Student council, volleyball, and basketball teams, and she is also a student aide who has received DeLay’s “Outstanding Harvester” award. Reaunna will without a doubt leave behind a legacy at DeLay as her siblings are former Harvesters as well. She exhibits the leadership qualities of humility, selflessness, grit and perseverance.
