Alexandra Buchanan was honored as our Student of the Month on Tuesday, December 19th.  Alex is the daughter of Sally and Chad Buchanan of Mequon.
Alex is a senior at Homestead High School, where she is actively involved in several sports, clubs and charitable organizations.  Volunteering has been an important part of her high school career.  She is a member of the Service Club of Milwaukee, an all-girls high school organization dedicated to providing community service to the greater Milwaukee area.  She has spent 200+ hours volunteering for this organization, with a specific dedication to Aurora Medical Center Grafton, Cedar Spring Health and Rehabilitation Center and the Wyenberg Library.  She created a special children’s reading program at the Wyenberg Library called “Reading with Reggie”, where she brings her certified therapy dog, Reggie, to help elementary age children become more confident while reading.  She recently completed her second year participating with the Link Crew, which is an organization comprised of upperclassmen who mentor incoming freshman to help make a smooth transition from middle school to Homestead High School. 
When Alex is not volunteering, you can find her in the pool, on the ice, or running down the field.  She was a member of Homestead’s varsity swim and dive team for three years.  She is also a captain and member of the Homestead girl’s hockey and lacrosse teams.
Alex narrowed her college choices to the University of Arizona, University of Missouri and Florida State University.  She plans to study nursing. 
Alex, we thank you for your “Service Above Self!”
