About Rylee, Jarvis said, “Rylee is a wonderful student who has inspired me, as well. Rylee is very enthusiastic and has shown a caliber level of work ethic for a young woman her age. Her kindness towards others is one of her many endearing qualities that I admire most. As a teacher, I feel honored to have had the chance to be a part of her journey. Her passion for all she attempts shines through every single minute of every single day. Rylee Davis is most deserving of this award. She has made Madison-Plains proud.”
