The School District of Lee County is proud to congratulate Fort Myers High School Senior Paris Thompson for being named 2020 Florida Dairy Farmers Miss Volleyball. The outside hitter won the award following a final round of voting by a statewide panel of high school volleyball coaches and media representatives.
“It is such an honor to be voted Miss Volleyball,” Thompson says. “I was in shock hearing that I had been selected with the amount of talent currently in Florida. Looking through the past winners it represents some of the most talented volleyball players in the country. I feel so honored to now be a part of that list. I could not have done it without coach Steph Martin and my teammates these past four years.”
Thompson led Fort Myers High School to the 2020 Class 6A Final Four, posting 413 kills, 228 digs and 42 aces. She was named the Class 6A Player of the Year in November. The second team Under Armour All-America has signed to play college volleyball at the University of Notre Dame.
The Florida Dairy Farmers High School Sports Awards program exemplifies Florida Dairy Farmers’ commitment to the state’s youth. This marks the 29th year of these unique awards to honor the state’s top athletes and coaches in all 30 FHSAA sanctioned and recognized sports. The program also emphasizes to young people the importance of keeping dairy products a primary part of their diet in their overall nutrition plan.
