The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Cole Davis 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.
Cole has a 4.008 grade point average and he is ranked ninth in his class. His favorite course is anatomy. Cole has played baseball all four years of high school. He also has participated in powerlifting for two years and basketball for one year. Cole has been in the National Honor Society for three years.
When asked to name a Madison-Plains staff person who inspires him, Cole named high school teacher Molly Niese.
“Miss Niese (inspires me) because she always wants the best for her students, and she is always willing to help. She is super sweet and always puts a smile on my face,” he said.
Regarding Cole, Niese stated, “I first ‘met’ Cole during the early beginnings of the pandemic. He was a sophomore taking virtual biology, and I never saw more than a black screen staring back at me as I taught through Google Meet. Despite this hurdle, Cole excelled in the class and turned in some very thought-provoking work. I remember emailing him suggesting he consider a career in science because his work and dedication to the class truly astounded me.
“Two years have passed since then, and I still feel the same way as he sits in anatomy. At the beginning of this year, he told me he planned to go into medicine. Though I think Cole would shine in any profession, it excites me to know the medical field will be getting such an inquisitive, kind, and inspiring person to join their ranks. He is truly deserving of being selected as Rotary’s Student of the Month, and I cannot wait to see his further accolades as he leaves MPHS and takes on the world.”
After graduation, Cole plans to attend Wilmington College to become an occupational therapist. He is the son of Heather and Glenn Davis.
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.
