Mattress Firm’s Student of The Week celebrates Isaac Fisher!
Meet Isaac Fisher, a senior at Arlee High School and an inspiring leader of the Arlee Warrior team. In 2018, the Arlee Warriors started the Warrior movement. Its purpose: to make sure every person on Earth knows they matter, they’re loved and someone cares.
“I get people coming up to me saying the Warrior Movement really helped them, and they hug me and tell me what a good job they are doing, because they have known someone or lost a loved one because of suicide,” Fisher said. “It’s really touching and powerful… I know it’s true and meaningful to them.”
While Isaac is well known for his thunderous dunks on the court, he and his teammates also stand out off-court using their platform to raise awareness for suicide prevention as well as equality.
“It’s kind of surreal. I don’t think we realize how much the movement is helping people here in Montana or across the country. I go places and may have a Warrior Movement hat on, and someone will see me and come up to me and say, ‘That saved my life.’ And the emails we have had, hundreds of emails and texts from different people all over the country, that have said it’s given them strength to either stand up against depression or given them strength to reach out to a family member or friend.”
We wish you all the success in your future endeavors Isaac Fisher and thank you for motivating and inspiring all of us!
