The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Molly Weese as London High School’s February Student of the Month.
Students of the month are selected by school administrators based on their academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.
Molly has a 4.498 grade point average and is ranked seventh in her class. Her favorite class is anatomy.
Molly has been on the merit honor roll for three years and National Honor Society her senior year. She was named to the dean’s list at Clark State Community College the fall semester of 2022 and the spring and fall semesters of 2023. She was named a Junior Kiwanian last year by the London Kiwanis Club.
Molly was a four-year member of the varsity women’s soccer team, serving twice as team captain. She was named second-team CBC as a junior, first-team CBC as a senior, and second-team Central District as a senior.
Molly is a four-year member of the indoor and outdoor track and field team and has received the following honors thus far: second-team CBC as a sophomore, second-team CBC as a junior, and indoor state qualifier as a junior. She is the Heisman Scholarship school winner this year.
When asked to name a school staff person who has inspired her, she cited English teacher Michelle Sambas.
“Mrs. Sambas is an inspiration to me because she makes sure that everyone understands the topics that we are discussing and will not hesitate to give help if needed. She has been my English teacher for the last two years and does a great job at teaching the material. I always enjoy going to her class and feel like I am learning something valuable every time,” Molly said.
Sambas commented, “Molly is an incredibly reliable and hard working young woman. She’s not afraid to share her ideas and stand her ground in discussion, yet her willingness to listen to others shows her patience and open mindedness. Her hard work and determination will help her go far and accomplish much. I believe that Molly will achieve great things, and I look forward to her success.”
Molly plans to attend college to earn a bachelor’s degree in nursing. She would like to further her education in the medical field to become a nurse practitioner and work in pediatrics. She is the daughter of Doug and Karen Weese of London.
