Plainview’s Anna Lassahn – FCA All-State Spotlight Presented by Carter County Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM

 

Anna Lassahn is a senior at Plainview High School who loves her school and her community.

“My favorite thing about Plainview is how close everyone is and how much everyone cares about and supports each other in this community,” she said.

Lassahn keeps a busy schedule, as she played soccer up until her junior year, is currently president of Plainview’s National Honor Society, actively involved at her local CrossFit gym, and a representative for student council. She has dedicated much of her time to her involvement with FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) and Plainview’s scholastic team, which she has been part of all four years of high school. Her role on the scholastic team is an important one and she has been able to help her team achieve a lot.

“Every year I have placed at each meet we attend, leading Plainview to win almost every meet we have attended throughout my high school career,” she said. “I also have qualified for the state meet each year, where I have earned the distinction of Scholastic All-State for the past two years. This year I have qualified to take twelve tests at state.”

Upon moving to Plainview, Lassahn joined FCA her freshman year after being invited by a friend.

“It was a great way to make friends and get involved at my new school,” she said. “I became a part of the leadership team my sophomore year and continued to be active throughout high school, and finally serving as president this year!”

Lassahn has made friends in FCA as well as found mentors to look up to.

“Many of my role models have been women I have met through FCA, such as Gina Dillon, Hannah Davis, and Shelby Carel,” she said. “They have all inspired my faith at some point in my high school career through their example and leadership and taught me to grow deeper in my relationship with the Lord and show unconditional love to those around me.”

At the end of the day, it is Lassahn’s faith that pushes her to strive for greatness in all aspects of her life.

“My Christian faith is my primary motivator to not only be the best I can be each day, but become more like Jesus daily,” she said. “My faith inspires me to strive for excellence in everything that I do and to reach the full potential that God has given me.”

After high school Lassahn plans to attend the University of Oklahoma to major in Industrial and Systems Engineering and earn a business degree.
