The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Allison “Allie” Handley as London 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.

Handley has a 4.41 grade point average and is ranked ninth in her class. Her favorite class is public speaking. She is vice president of the National Honor Society.

Handley has been a cheerleader for four years, cheering varsity the past three years. She has participated on the cheerleading competition squad all four years of high school. She was a member of the CBC second-team 2021 competition cheerleading and received the CBC Sportsmanship award in 2019 for competition cheerleading. She also has been a member of the tennis team all four years.

When asked to name a school staff person who inspires her, she pointed to English teacher Maureen Duncan.

“Ms. Duncan is an inspiration to me because she never lets a person’s ideas feel stupid and helps every student feel good about what they are doing,” Handley said. “She discussed college with me and helped me figure out what to do. She does great to make students feel comfortable and confident in the learning environment.”

About Handley, Duncan said, “Allie is a student in my public speaking class who has risen to each new challenge extremely well. She is well spoken, does her research, and works hard to engage her audience. Additionally, she is enrolled in several difficult College Credit Plus classes that she is moving through fairly independently. She is pursuing a future in nursing; her personable nature, drive, and aptitude in the sciences will make her successful. We are all proud to call Allie one of our own. ”

After graduation, Allie plans to go to college to study nursing and eventually become a nurse practitioner. She is the daughter of Joe and Kate Handley of London.

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.
