The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Gretchen Bennett as Madison-Plains High School’s February Student of the Month.
Students of the month are selected by school administrators based on their academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.
Bennett has a 4.0 grade point average, and her favorite course is pre-veterinary lab. For the past two years, she has been a strong leader and competitor in Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA).
When asked to name a school staff member who inspires her, Bennett replied, “My pre-veterinary lab teacher, Mrs. Pam Snider, holds high expectations for me and pushes me always to do my best.”
About Bennett, Snider said, “Gretchen is a cooperative and smart young lady. She will light up a room with her big smile and snappy eyes. She is always thoughtful and engaging with her peers.
“I think Gretchen has realized a lot about herself since she’s been at Tolles. Through this experience, she has learned to get out of her comfort zone and push herself to achieve higher. She is very conscientious about her grades and has excellent attendance. Gretchen has always been a pleasure to have in class, and I will miss her when she graduates. I know she has a bright future in the veterinary medical field, and I look forward to watching her amazing journey to see what the future has in store for her.”
After graduation, Bennett plans to attend Columbus State Community College and become a veterinary technician. She is the daughter of Brian and Christina Bennett.
The London Rotary Club has a proud history dating back to 1929. It is a member of Rotary International, a volunteer organization of 1.2 million businesses and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build good will and peace.
