The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Alex Homan as London High School’s September Student of the Month.
Students of the month are selected by school administrators based on their academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.
Alex has a 4.49 grade point average, is ranked fourth in his class, and states his favorite class was sophomore year biology.
Alex has played varsity soccer for four years and is a three-time captain of the team. In soccer, Alex was named to the CBC 2nd Team twice. He was also a CBC Athlete of the Month and received the Defensive MVP and Red Raider soccer awards. Alex is a four-year member of the tennis team and has received a team award for tennis leadership and the CBC Tennis Sportsmanship award. Alex played two years of basketball and one year each of varsity track and field and cross country.
In addition to his participation in sports, Alex had a part in the high school musical, “Hello, Dolly” and more recently played the part of Rolf’ in the Madison County Arts Council’s production of “The Sound of Music.” Alex participated in a cultural learning trip to Costa Rica with the high school Spanish program.
When asked to name a London City Schools staff member who inspires him, Alex named Roy Greenlee, Spanish teacher, instructional coach, and high school tennis coach.
“Mr. Greenlee has encouraged me to be myself and to be a better person while in class, on the tennis court, and outside of school,” Alex said.
About Alex, Greenlee said, “I have worked with Alex both as a coach and teacher the past five years. He is not only extremely dedicated to participating in sports and academics but truly strives to improve his skills through hard work and constant revision. He is very open to feedback and not afraid to challenge himself if it means that improvements are possible. Alex also participated in our trip abroad to Costa Rica this past summer. He showed a deep appreciation for the culture and was a great addition to the group.”
Alex plans to attend a four-year college and is undecided at this time. Alex is the son of Marvin and Jodi Homan of London.
