WISD Education Foundation Student Scholar Athlete of the Week
Lady Roo varsity softball player Gracie Davis is this week’s Education Foundation Student Athlete of the Week.
Gracie is a senior and has been on varsity, starting at shortstop, since her freshman year.
She’s played softball since she was 4-years old with Weatherford Little League and later played select softball with the Texas Fusion Organization. Her team has played at USSSA Nationals every year since she was in junior high. She’s also played volleyball, tennis, basketball and track with Weatherford ISD through school and in Community Ed leagues.
She’s been named to the Academic All-District team since her freshman year and also earned Second Team All-District as a freshman. Other post-season awards include being named Defensive Player of the Year during her sophomore year and First Team All-District her junior year.
Gracie plans to play softball in college and pursue a degree in biology, with a goal of becoming a Physician’s Assistant.

Outreach Club Having a Busy Fall
The Outreach Community Service Club collected about 200 school supplies for the Hurricane Harvey Relief during the month of September.
During October they collected pumpkins, and last week they invited some other students to decorate them with stickers and glitter during MegaLunch.
Last week they helped Student Council Raise money with the food booths and plan on raising money by face painting for the Divine Water organization that goes around Africa building water wells or people with little to no access to fresh drinking water.
