Lisa M Russell

Graduating class of 1991

When the US Army adopted the slogan, “Be All That You Can Be”, they must have had Lisa Russell in mind. At Central High School and later at West Point, Lisa was a “shooting star”; truly all that she could be, and more. As a member of the Little Green girls basketball team, Lisa scored 1,412 career points. In 1991, she was named Miss New Hampshire Basketball and also was the Most Valuable Player of the Senior All-Star game. She earned 11 varsity letters in basketball, soccer, and track during her four years at Central. At the US Military Academy, she led the women’s basketball team in scoring for three consecutive years and finished her career with 1,411 points. In 1992, she tallied 393 points, a school scoring record for freshmen. She was selected to the All Patriot League Basketball Team on three occasions and to the All Metropolitan New York First Team once. She graduated from West Point in 1995 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics. Lisa served from 1996 to 2001 with the US Army Transportation Corps at Fort Eustis, Virginia. She left the military with the rank of captain. Lisa resides in Waipahu, Hawaii and teaches math related subjects at Radford High School in Honolulu. In addition, she coaches the girls varsity soccer team and the girls junior varsity basketball squad.
