The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Cidny Long as Madison-Plains High School’s December Student of the Month.
Students of the month are selected by school administrators based on their academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.
Long has a 4.296 grade point average, and her favorite course is media literature. She is a four-year member of the volleyball team which won back-to-back Ohio Heritage Conference (OHC) league championships. Long earned the following volleyball awards: first-team All-OHC, first-team All-Central District, Player of the Year for Central District, and Player of the Year for Madison-Plains. Additionally, she has been a two-year member of the softball team, a four-year member of student council, and a member of the Madison-Plains chapter of the National Honor Society, serving as president this year.
When asked to name a school staff member who inspires her, Long named French teacher Beatrice Omwomo.
“She is so dedicated to her job and has such love and passion for what she is doing,” Long said. “I hope that one day when I fulfill my dreams that I will have that same love for what I am doing that she has.”
About Long, Omwomo stated, “I have been exceptionally fortunate to teach Cidny for three years. She is dedicated, reliable, self-disciplined, and very hardworking. Our class is always cheerful and positive because of Cidny’s contagious, pleasant demeanor. In brief, Cidny is a model student with an excellent attitude about learning.”
After graduation, Cidny plans to attend a four-year university to major in pre-veterinary medicine/biology. Afterwards, she plans to earn her doctor of veterinary medicine degree. She is the daughter of Chris and CeCe Long.
