Lindsay Fehir is the Stanhope School District’s 2020 Sussex County Superintendents’ Roundtable Student Award Winner.


Superintendent Steve Hagemann describes Lindsay as having… “ a tremendous work-ethic; dedicating herself to success in the classroom and on the field, court, and track. She volunteers her time to help others in our school, her church, and club sports teams, and has led and participated in various fundraisers and initiatives to feed and clothe the homeless through her church.”


She describes herself as “unique” because she’d rather hold a basketball than an iPhone, but, Hagemann remarks,”we just see her as Lindsay, a driven, self-motivated young lady willing to work hard to crush her goals.”


Having known Lindsay since coming to Valley Road School as principal in 2014, Hagemann recalls that “Lindsay hasn’t taken the traditional path to success, and success in school didn’t always come easy. She worked hard as an elementary basic skills student to overcome some learning struggles, and in middle school has earned honor-roll in every marking period.”


Lindsay is taking advanced algebra and dreams of attending Virginia Tech’s engineering program.


She enjoys building “gadgets” and motors and she repurposes remote control cars with her father.


She is in the school band, is a captain of the Valley Road School basketball team, and has participated in Robotics, Coding, and Yearbook Clubs. She participates in Track & Field and she’s earned first place at Battle of the Books competitions. Lindsay also plays travel basketball, softball, and field hockey.
