WALTON, Ky. - Our Student of the Week is a Northern Kentucky student who makes hard work a part of her daily routine.
Laura Davis, a student at Walton-Verona High School, puts her all into everything she's doing. She takes advanced placement courses and carries a 3.94 GPA.
Also, Davis is the president for the Future Business Leaders of America.
"She's been a great student in the classroom. She's always a great representative of this school, her community, her family and we're just so proud of her," says David Sandlin, a business teacher at the high school.
Davis says hard work comes naturally to her.
"I'm always doing everything I can to get everything done. So hopefully he saw some drive in me, that if I want something done, I will do what it takes to get it done and do it to the best of my ability," Davis said.
Davis also went on a trip to Jamaica to help out at local orphanages. She is always happy to donate her time locally and takes pride in being a role model to other students.
"I hope they can look up to me and say that's who I want to be and if she can do it, I can because she works and goes to school and is in FBLA and if she can do it, anyone can," said Davis.
Even though Davis is still in high school, she's already been accepted the University of Louisville's school of dentistry.
"[Davis] has proven herself to be a conscientious, hard-working student always eager to learn and better herself," Sandlin said. "[Davis]’s inquisitive nature and active participation makes her a joy to teach and an asset to any class of which she is a part. She is always considerate and courteous and is highly regarded by members of the faculty and staff here at Walton-Verona High School."
