The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Drake Goings as Madison-Plains High School’s March Student of the Month.

Students of the month are selected by school administrators based on their academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.

Drake has a 4.008 grade point average and is ranked seventh in his class. His favorite course is World Geography.

During his time in high school, Drake played varsity football for three years and served as team captain. He also has participated in track and powerlifting for three years. Additionally, he has served as a junior and senior class officer in the role of treasurer. He is a member of National Honor Society and is an honor roll student.

When asked which Madison-Plains staff member inspires him, Drake picked Madison-Plains English teacher Tammy Pitstick.

“Mrs. Pitstick inspired me to actually read more and pushes me to be the best student and person I can be,” he said.

Regarding Drake, Pitstick said, “As a part of our British Literature class, Drake Goings has allowed me the honor of interacting with him and witnessing his commitment to his current and future education. He is a focused, sincere learner. Beyond academics, Drake esteems his family, his friends, and his teachers, carrying with him a constant positivity toward and understanding of others. It has been a privilege to have Drake in my class.”

After graduation, Drake plans to attend Ashland University to play football and study computer science. He is the son of Harold Goings and Mandy Harness.

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.
