Juniors and seniors at Lakeview Centennial High School received a special surprise to kick off their Homecoming Week Oct. 17. LCHS alumna and WWE star Ember Moon, also known as Adrienne Reese, spoke to students about having a dream and working hard to achieve it despite any challenges life may bring. Reese spent 10 years seeking a professional wrestling career, never taking no for an answer.
“If you have a dream, work hard for it,” she told the audience of more than 1,000. “You won’t be happy until you do.”
Reese also encouraged her Lakeview Centennial family to not stop once they achieve their goal, but rather to become the best at whatever it is. Just two years after signing with WWE, she claimed the NXT Women’s Championship title.
Reese also answered questions from the audience during her visit. And before she left, she gifted the school with one of her wrestling belts to display for future Patriots.
