“Be the change you want to see in the world” is a statement that holds true to Rocky Point High School senior Alexa Kuhn who is doing just that and getting others on board with her mission.
Messages of positivity, hope and help adorn a bulletin board at Rocky Point High School, courtesy of Alexa. A defender on the varsity field hockey team, Alexa recently headed up a student-organized game to bring awareness to Morgan’s Message, a story of a young woman’s life that amplifies resources and expertise to confront student-athlete mental health, builds a community by and for student-athletes and provides a platform for advocacy.
Alexa was instrumental in organizing her teammates in a recent field hockey competition against Sacred Heart Academy for a nonleague game of action for Morgan’s Message, winning the game 3-2.
She will continue to share and promote the work of the organization at the high school level, taking action to help eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health within the student-athlete community.
