The movement restrictions imposed by the coronavirus made seeing friends difficult for a lot of folks during the spring and summer. But not so much for Lexi Lollis. She and a lot of her friends have played together on a traveling softball team for several years and so they still got to see each other during this otherwise stressful time. And now all of these friends are starting their senior year at Henryetta High School together on the fast pitch and slow pitch softball teams. But even with that, Lexi acknowledges some sadness about the start of school this year.

“I’ve taken all of the Covid stuff pretty hard with me being a senior and not getting to see all of my friends because we didn’t start out with in-person school. Being in regular class I think we just get better teaching and I miss that,” said Lollis who is a member of the student council and Knights for Christ. “We did get to start out the softball season all right but then had to go into quarantine for a while and now we’re scrambling to try and make up the games we missed.”

One of the things that helped make Lexi a Home Town Hero occurs during the holidays.

“My sister and I got to Walmart each year and ring the bell for the Henryetta Lions Club and the money they raise goes to help less fortunate families and we also volunteer to wrap presents,” said Lollis who is also on the cheer squad this year. “I like being involved in my town and I like being around and helping other people.”

And that’s pretty much what being a hero is all about.
