The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Luke Wilson as London High School’s January Student of the Month.

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

Luke has a 4.369 grade point average and is ranked second in his class. His favorite classes are College Credit Plus Calculus and Ohio State physics. Luke was first in his class the 2021-22 school year and has been named to the Clark State Community College dean’s list the past three years. He scored 5/5 on the Advanced Placement American history exam in May 2022, a feat less than 11 percent of students achieve.

Luke is taking classes full time at Ohio State via the Ohio State Academy Program and has over 60 college credits. He scored a 35 on the ACT. He has been on the Merit Honor Roll all four years of high school and was named a member of National Honor Society this past fall. He is a two-year member of the Quick Recall team. He also served as a Buckeye Boys State delegate and Boys Nation nominee in 2023 and was named a Junior Kiwanian by the London Kiwanis Club.

As a photographer and videographer, Luke covers high school sporting events and records the high school plays and musicals sponsored by the London Theater Department. Additionally, he is working an internship at WCBE, an NPR member station, through the John Glenn High School Internship Program.

When asked to name a school staff person who inspires him, Luke named former math teacher Hana Woodson.

“She provided a relaxing atmosphere for her students and fostered my love of math,” he said.

He also named Betsy Dennis, London City Schools’ college and career readiness coordinator, for helping him to navigate the challenge of handling college coursework while still in high school.

About Luke, Dennis said, “Luke is an exceptional student and an even better young man. It has been my absolute pleasure to support him as he has challenged himself academically and continues to grow his passions personally. He is currently taking classes full time at The Ohio State University and remains an active member of the LHS community. I am so proud of Luke and excited for what his future holds!”

Luke plans to attend a four-year university to get a degree in aerospace engineering and eventually pursue a Ph.D. in physics. He is the son of Steve and Mindy Wilson 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.
