The London Rotary Club is pleased to honor senior Spencer Baker as Madison-Plains High School’s May Student of the Month.
Students of the month are selected by school administrators based on their academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.
Baker has a 4.13 grade point average. His favorite course is Advanced Placement Calculus. He has served on the Ohio Attorney General’s Teen Ambassador Board since 2017, earning a letter of commendation from the Ohio legislature for his work on the board.
Baker has been class president all four years of high school. He has been a member of the Madison-Plains FFA chapter, earning the FFA Academic Excellence award all four years. He has been a four-year member of the Quick Recall team which placed first in the Ohio Heritage Conference this year.
Additionally, Baker has been on the golf team for three years and is a member of the high school’s chapter of the National Honor Society. He was chosen to be a Questbridge National College Match finalist and in the Questbridge Summer Scholars Program.
When asked to name a school staff member who inspires him, Baker named Molly Niese.
“The relationship she makes with her students is so much more than just teaching. She treats every student with respect and open arms, and her students follow suit. Her impact extends so much farther than the classroom, and I truly am a better person because of Ms. Niese.”
About Baker, Niese said, “Spencer is an exemplar student and individual. His determination to succeed, respect for others, and school spirit were infectious, and he will be missed. I look forward to hearing all about his successes in the future.”
After graduation, Baker plans to attend Miami University to pursue a degree in political science. He is the son of Alyce and Alan Baker.
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.
