Xavier Manville: London Student of the Month

The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Xavier Manville as London High School’s October Student of the Month.

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

Manville has a 4.3 grade point average and is ranked fourth in his class. His favorite class is psychology.  He is a four-year member of the football team and is proud of the team’s success in reaching the playoffs the past two years. He is a two-year member of the National Honor Society and serves as the club secretary.

When asked to name a school staff member who inspires him, Manville named Rosa Flores.

“Mrs. Flores always pushed me and never settled with anything less than my best. She transformed me into a determined and diligent student. On top of that, her personality always brightens my day!” Manville said.

Flores commented, “It was a pleasure teaching Xavier. In biology, he demonstrated the ability to critically think and work independently and within a group setting. Xavier also showed a positive attitude towards learning and studying and has continued to excel in his studies. It was always nice to see Xavier with a giant smile ready to tackle the day’s pop quiz.”

After graduation, Manville hopes to attend college and obtain a degree in psychology. He is the son of Mark and Rebecca Manville 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 business and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build good will and peace.
