The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Jenna Bailey 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.

Jenna has a 3.745 grade point average, ranking her 11th in her class. Her favorite course is agricultural business and management. Jenna has been in FFA for four years and has been an FFA Star Chapter Farmer. She earned first-place finishes in general career development events, including poultry judging, dairy cattle handling, and soil judging, and took third place in sub-districts for creed speaking.

She has participated in 4-H for 10 years and has built an impressive record there, as well. She was the 2019 Overall Showman of Showmen and a Silver Star member. She shows dairy feeders, breeding and market poultry, breeding rabbits, and dairy and market goats.

When asked to name a school staff member who inspires her, Jenna named agricultural education teacher Shelby McCarty.

“Mrs. McCarty inspires me to try my hardest at everything I do and do my best when I try,” she said.

About Jenna, McCarty said, “I have had the pleasure of knowing Jenna for four years. She is very passionate about the agricultural industry and is one of the most involved students in ag for her graduating class. Jenna is a hard-working young woman, and when she sets her mind to something she always puts in 110 percent.

“I’m excited to watch her follow her passion for poultry science in college. I know that she will go far and do well in all her endeavors. It’s been a pleasure to be her advisor and teacher for the past four years.”

After graduation, Jenna plans to attend college at Wilmington, major in animal science, and become a poultry nutritionist. She is the daughter of John and Patricia Bailey.

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.
