Lauren Burkett- SAOM- July
Lauren Burkett is an upcoming senior at George Ranch High School in Richmond, Texas. She has played 3rd base for the GRHS Longhorn softball team for the past three years, and loves it!
From a young age, whether on the soccer field, racing in the pool or battling it out on the softball field, Lauren has always loved being part of a competitive team. Lauren has played select softball for the past five years and through her select ball seasons, she has made many lifelong friends. Select ball has given Lauren the opportunity to play the game she loves across the country.
No matter what, Lauren gives 110% in the classroom and on the field. She enjoys the challenge of taking on AP and dual credit classes. Lauren’s interest in healthcare began her freshman year as a member of HOSA. Off the field and out of the classroom, Lauren enjoys spending time with her friends and family. She also loves volunteering in the community through League of Champions, Lunches of Love, GRHS Athletic Booster Club and Common Threads.
Lauren would like to thank Coach Donna Vrba for this nomination and for mentoring her into a better person and player. Lauren has been blessed to have many great coaches and teachers who have supported and encouraged her along her life path. Also, a special thank you to Coach Tony Davis, Coach Leslie Sheffy and her hitting coach Damon Leonetti. Lauren is looking forward to a great senior year, go Horns!
