The United States Marine Corps has named Senior Rachael Fantoni of Marion the 2020 Semper Fidelis All American. Rachael is one of 96 students recognized across the U.S. who have met an impressive list of requirements to be considered. These include having a 3.5 or higher GPA, are active in community service, play a competitive team sport, and hold a leadership role in their school or community.
The United States Marine Corps also recognizes the importance of building a support system to enable the success of the next generation, and they are proud to honor Jeff Lombard for the positive influence they had on Miss Fantoni. Mr. Lombard, a teacher at Old Rochester Regional Junior High School, coaches Fantoni on the ORRHS Varsity Soccer Team, was chosen by Fantoni because of the profound impact that he has had in helping her achieve this honor.
