Erica Richard, Math Teacher, said, “I have had the honor to teach Wesley his sophomore year. He is one of those students that you wish your whole class could be like. To say that he is your average young man, would not do him justice. He is one extraordinary young man! I know without a doubt, that Wesley will go onto do great things with his future.”
Cathy Riley, English Department Chair and Director of Bridge City Strutters, said, “WESLEY LEWIS is absolutely one of my favorite students because he is an absolute gentleman with a powerful inner drive for success. His strong work ethics are stellar among BCHS male students. He earned a 4 on the English AP Language and Composition exam which is no easy feat. Focused and self-confident, WESLEY sets goals and does not give up until they are achieved. One such goal was the Lamar University Mirabeau Scholarship, and now that goal has been reached. One might see WESLEY in a classroom competing in math at UIL meets, speaking eloquently as he analyzes an AP novel in English IV AP class, or powerlifting at various competitions. WESLEY wrote a “passion” essay as one of my assignments in the fall. In it, he describes his passion as creating a better version of true self and relates this transformation to his love of powerlifting. Whether he is in the classroom or in the gym, he “makes every day of hard work worthwhile.” WESLEY LEWIS is a symbol of individuality and inspiration that fuels others to feel self-confident. “HUZZAH, LEWIS!”
When asked about his future plans, Wesley said, “I plan on attending Lamar University to obtain a degree in Chemical Engineering.”
