October – Fisher Lyon

Senior Fisher Lyon has excelled in many areas over the years. He is deeply involved at RVHS and in the Rio Vista community as well. Nominated by the English department at RVHS, Fisher has strived to excel in English, which he claims is his most difficult subject. His nomination comes from his English teacher, Mrs. Gomes, whom he credits as really pushing him to do his best.

He has excelled at RVHS through his involvement in sports, academic achievements, and extracurricular activities. He has been a power forward on both the JV and varsity basketball teams, and during his junior year was a starter for the varsity team. Additionally, Fisher is an excellent swimmer. He began his swimming career with the Rio Vista Sharks, where he is currently working as a junior coach, and eventually joined the swim team at RVHS. Finally, Fisher enjoys being a part of the cross-country team and practiced diligently in the off-season in preparation for the upcoming season.

Fisher earned the incredible achievement of becoming an Eagle Scout through years of dedication and hard work. He was awarded a Leadership and Commitment Award for Boy Scouts as well. Finally, at RVHS he achieved Highest Honors as a junior, which translates to a 4.0+ for the entire year. Way to go, Fisher!

A strong believer in giving back to the community, Fisher is very involved with the NAMI club as treasurer, Interact Club, Robotics Club and Math Club. He also has participated in the Academic Decathlon.

Fisher has had a lot of support over the years from his wonderful parents, Teresa and Sam Lyon and younger sister, Samantha. In the future, he hopes to go to college and possibly focus on a major in Computer Science. Congratulations, Fisher and best of luck!
