Ms. Prom Queen

Section writer: Hannah Suh

Reesa Winters is a Woodstock High School senior this year who has been a great role model to me and many other people. I first met her through lacrosse, and from last year to this year, I was able to see her as a great leader and just overall person. I wanted to be able to write my last article on someone who was a great influence and motivator for me this year.

If you ask anyone who knows her about her, they will say so many positive things.

“Reesa is someone who was there to help me through the three years I have done lacrosse. I started in eighth grade playing on the High School team, and she helped me and many of the other girls by welcoming us and giving us tips and advice. She is always so bright and just someone you always want to be around. She is always hard working and kind and genuine. I am so thankful to have been able to play on the same team as her these three years. It is sad to see her leave, but I am glad that she is going to a great college and I hope she loves it!” -Mackenzie Rich, a sophomore

“Reesa was an amazing captain. She was able to show leadership in a fun way, making practices fun but still getting work done. She’s an amazing person and anyone would be lucky to have her as a friend. She’s a person whom you can trust and rely on. I’ve had the opportunity to play with her for two seasons and she’ll be greatly missed.”

For me, I started lacrosse in my freshman year, and I always saw her doing so great with lacrosse and helping everyone else. She was always smiling during games and having fun while being a great player. If she saw me or anyone else struggling during practices or a game, she would kindly help them and give them advice. It was always so memorable because she was so sweet about it and it really did help us become better players and a better team. As a senior, she was one of the team captains, so she took on a lot of responsibility and helped motivate the team and create a great atmosphere to help with the unity.
