Robert E. Lee High School students, staff observe Diabetes Awareness Month

November 27, 2017


November is Diabetes Awareness Month, and for these Robert E. Lee High School students and staff, an opportunity to share how diabetes has impacted each of them.


Principal Dr. Dan Crawford’s (left) daughter, Karli, was diagnosed with diabetes 18 months ago.


Kaitlyn Garcia’s sister, Maddie, has type 1 diabetes and has been struggling with it since she was five years old.



Anthony Farmer, tenth grader, was diagnosed with diabetes at age four. Anthony is a brown belt in karate and is working toward becoming a black belt. He enjoys playing the guitar and his favorite class is chemistry with Dr. Johnson.


Jaylah Stegall is a twelfth grader who has been living with diabetes since the third grade. She is involved in Rotary Club, UIL Spelling, Art Club Committee, StuCo, JV Tennis, and YoungLife. She is also the school’s mascot and recently was crowned Homecoming Queen. Although diabetes has affected her life in a large way, she says it hasn’t held her back from being involved in her school and community.


Dean of Instruction Jennifer Orren’s close friend is battling diabetes.


Robert E. Lee High School will spend the final week of November, Nov 27 through Nov. 30, observing Diabetes Awareness on campus.
