Leander ISD Fine Arts Student of the Week Jessica Egelsee carries herself with an air of authority and altruism.

The Running Brushy Middle School eighth-grader serves as the captain of the Silver Stars performance and dance teams. Jessica balances dance in and out of school. She spends 15 or more hours per week rehearsing with a private dance company. However, she easily handles her Silver Stars leadership role and dance team commitments. Despite a full dance card, Jessica still maintains an “A” average in all her classes. She’s also a member of the National Junior Honor Society.

“Jessica stands out among her peers for her high level of maturity and responsibility,” RBMS Silver Stars director Jessica Harris said. “She is trustworthy and leads her team with poise and charisma. Jessica role models academic success all while excelling in and out of school with dance and her leadership role.”
