LewisBochetteIIIFreshman Lewis Bochette is the Rock Solid Regent for the week of March 14. Lewis is a nursing major from Harvard, Illinois. He was nominated by Jim Schroeder, Head Football Coach. Coach Schroeder shared that Lewis is a focused, hard worker in the classroom and on the field. He is an example of the “academic athlete” that RU is eager to have participate in the sports program. During the fall semester, while balancing his practice and game schedule, Lewis earned a 3.5 GPA and he is working to do even better for the spring semester. Additionally, he also works as an event staff member for RU basketball games.

Lewis enjoys RU because of the small class sizes and the healthy environment with great students, coaches, professors and staff members. He feels that faculty and staff do their best to help students accomplish their goals not only in the classroom but also in life. After graduation from RU Lewis has plans to work as an emergency room nurse and possibly attend graduate school to further his education. Congratulations, Lewis!
