Why do you feel this student deserves to be the Advocate's Star Student of the Week?
"Leesa is a classic example of how hard work pays off in and out of the classroom. In the fall, Leesa became Victoria East's first-ever state qualifier, in any sport, by earning a trip to the state cross country meet. Most recently, Leesa has been offered a scholarship to attend the University of North Texas, where she will also run cross country. I have to say that Leesa is definitely a 'Beast from the East,' and it is a pleasure recommending her for this recognition."
