Cleveland High School senior Kayla Fletcher will attend Pratt Junior College in Pratt, Kansas, this fall on a track scholarship. A formal signing of the scholarship was held on May 21 in the Cleveland High School gymnasium with Fletcher’s mom, Kawanna, and brother, LaByron, in attendance.
In addition to running track, Fletcher played on the girls volleyball and basketball teams for all four years of high school. During her senior year, she was named MVP for track, earned an Honorable Mention in volleyball and made the All-District Second Team for basketball.
She was a Regional qualifier for the last two years in track.
“She is a great kid and is going to do well,” said Girls Athletic Coordinator Coach Shiakiea Carter. “She doesn’t need anyone to motivate her. I am so happy and proud for her. I am excited to see where she is in four years when she completes college.”
Her friend and fellow athlete, Cierra Allen, said during the signing, “She is definitely someone you should strive to be like. She is a top athlete and competes hard. It’s been an honor to be her teammate.”
