Congratulations to our Student-Athletes of the Month:  Annabelle Garrard and Slade Swaney!

Annabelle is a sophomore member of the tennis team and the Tiger Girls Dance Team. Annabelle says she has always wanted to be a part of athletics at the high school level. “Truly nothing compares to going out on that competition floor with your best friends and dance family. I also just recently joined the tennis team. My friends are the ones who convinced me to join and I have had so much fun playing so far.” In the future, Annabelle plans to go to college, though she isn’t sure where yet. When asked who has impacted her the most at RHS, Annabelle said, “Mrs. Fleming has impacted me the most academically at RHS. She is always so positive, kind, and supportive. Her class is so much fun and I look forward to it every day! Another teacher who has impacted me is Mrs. Lane. She is truly the sweetest and I loved her class last year so much.”

Slade Swaney is a freshman who plays football and golf. He also throws the shot put and discus for the Varsity track team. He loves sports, and he hopes that playing several sports will help him stand out so he can play at the college level. Slade says, “My goal is to play football in college and use my platform to preach the good word to people.” When asked to talk about who has impacted his time at RHS, Slade said, “Mr. Plottel, he really proved to me that I can do anything with enough drive to do so.”

Congratulations, Annabelle and Slade! We are so proud of you!
