The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Blayne Williams as Madison-Plains High School’s January Student of the Month.
Students of the month are selected by school administrators based on their academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.
Blayne has a 3.83 grade point average and is ranked 15th in his class. His favorite course is drawing. Blayne has played basketball all four years of high school. He earned the Dedication Award in 2020 and the Academic Excellence Award for the 2021-22 season. He currently serves as the varsity team captain.
When asked to name a school staff member who inspires him, Blayne chose high school teacher Tobi Briggs.
“Mrs. Briggs inspires me to always have a smile on my face every day and say, ‘Hi,’ to new people in the hallways,” he said.
Regarding Blayne, Mrs. Briggs stated, “Blayne is an exceptional young man who has contributed in many different positive ways in our school. He is a humble student who would prefer to simply go about his way and do what he knows is the right thing to do with or without recognition. I have known Blayne for four years and, no matter what the situation, Blayne has always been consistently optimistic. He always has a smile on his face and is always willing to help with anything that needs to be done. He is respected by his peers, is a hard worker, and a role model to underclassmen alike. I have no doubt that he will go on to do great things after he graduates, and I wish him the best of luck in everything he chooses to do.”
After graduation, Blayne plans to enter the work force and possibly find a trade. He is the son of Matthew and Angela Williams.
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.
