Congratulations to Fleet Wallace from St. Christopher’s School, our week 6 nominee for the Lexus of Richmond Pursuit of Perfection Leadership Award!
With a GPA of 4.3, Fleet has excelled academically as an AP scholar with honors, the Richmond Times Dispatch Scholar-Athlete of the Month for Sept 2014, and as the recipient of the West Point Leadership Award. Outside of the classroom, Fleet has been active as a peer advisor, an acolyte at St. Stephen’s Church and as the President of the Missionary Society. Fleet is a 3-sport team captain in Football, Basketball and Lacrosse. In football, he currently leads the team in most offensive receiving categories through first 7 games, is the leading receiver in the Richmond area in the latest RTD stats, and is also team leader, or close to the top, on defense. In lacrosse, he is not only team captain but is also All-Prep. Fleet has given back to the community through several outlets, including a mission trip to the Dominican Republic and by participating in the Saturday Academy and the 100 4 100 program (a student-run program established to raise money to give 100 $100 gift cards to underprivileged children for Christmas). Fleet plans to attend Cornell University where he is committed to play lacrosse.
Fleet has won a dinner for two at Fleming’s Steakhouse and is now in the running for the $10,000 scholarship.
