WE BELIEVE in a well-rounded educational experience at Newport Central Catholic and senior Lexy Breen of St. Joseph Parish is living it up! Also most like someone straight out of the Renaissance she is achieving high academic standards, participating in three sports and dedicating her time to a number of other community causes. The Honor Roll student and recipient of scholarship to NCC by way of the entrance exam is currently sporting a weighted 5.00 GPA and an unweighted 3.9 while also putting up a 29 on her ACT. Her work ethic and character have also earned her a spot in the Governor’s Scholar Program.
These achievements are even more incredible when you start to dive into Lexy’s involvement in and out of school. Lexy gives her time at Habitat for Humanity, The iCan Bike Camp for Children with Special Needs and the Ronald McDonald House to name a few. “At school I have learned the importance of giving back to others and the community,” Lexy mentioned. She also gives back to NCC directly by working grade school camps and being an inspiration to younger peers through her leadership.
As a captain in all three sports’ seasons, Lexy is an amazing leader through example and character. She has earned spots on the All District Team in Volleyball, All Region Team in Basketball, and All “A” Regional Tournament Team in Softball and the list goes on. Off the field, her leadership through programs like the Anthony Munoz Leadership Conference, Breds for Life, Pep Club, Student Ambassador, and Blood Drive Committee make her resume even more impressive.
In true humility, she credits her achievements to those that surround her. “The support from those at NCC is most important. The teachers take time to ensure students understand. Teachers, faculty and students constantly ask me about my games and always encourage and congratulate me,” insists Lexy. All of her achievements are special, but Phil and Donna Breen, Lexy’s parents, and brother Trey, Class of 2017, should be most proud of this display of character. With such humility and leadership it is no coincidence, she is able to accomplish what she does.
Lexy likes to keep these things in perspective with her gratitude to God. “There has definitely been a stronger spiritual value that’s been instilled in me. We pray every morning, before classes, sports games, and even at football caravans with the Pep Club.” Her attitude of gratitude has led to many great things and is sure to continue for her.
The do-it-all senior plans to attend a four year college next year, but is uncertain on what she will study. What is almost certain is that Lexy will have an opportunity somewhere and she will make the most of whatever it may be.
