This year’s Mr. and Miss Lausanne, Matthew Russel and Christina Frye, embody what it means to be a Lynx. Both Christina and Matthew took every opportunity to be a part of various clubs and activities while also completing the rigorous full International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme.
Matthew is the type of person who is always looking for something new to do or learn, and this is shown through all he did at Lausanne. Matthew has been at Lausanne since first grade, and sees it as his second home now. Whether you’ve seen him in the various musicals and plays, at a swim meet or acting in Lynx Live, he never shies away from a challenge. This fall Matthew will be attending the Colorado School of Mines with a major in Mechanical Engineering with an emphasis in environmental or aeronautical engineering. Along with all he does outside of class, he is a part of the National Honor Society and the National Science Honor Society and is a Class SGA Representative. He is also a member of Model United Nations, International Thespian Society, Co-Spirit Leader and the Varsity Swim Team Captain. While Matthew has participated in many different clubs and sports on and off campus, through his work ethic he always manages his time, is eager to learn something new and excels in all he chooses to do.
Christina Frye was made for the spotlight. You may see her on stage being a part of the many musicals and plays or leading a pep rally with Matthew to hype up the school spirit of Lausanne students. Christina also participates in Night of Broadway, is a Student Ambassador, was a part of the Lausanne Pom Cats dance team and SGA. Christina is also a member of the March for Our Lives Club, where she takes the initiative to educate and inform others about important topics. As a member of the National Honor Society, National Science Honor Society, National English Honor Society, Sigma Society, and Rho Kappa Honor Society, Christina is at the top of her class academically. In the fall, Christina will take her academic talents to Barnard College, where she plans to major in Anthropology and Sociology. Christina has been the embodiment of a Lausanne student in and out of the classroom and Barnard is very lucky to have such a great person and student.
Now that their time at Lausanne has come to an end and they head off to college, the memories and impact they left on our school is tremendous and will not be forgotten. Matthew and Christina should be very proud of all they have accomplished and we cannot wait to see what they do in the future, but no matter what they will always be a Lynx.
