Mikayla Moles maintains a 3.96 GPA at Batavia High School. The senior is also the president of the National Honor Society, a member of student council, yearbook staff, concert band, and mock trial team.
It’s Moles’ service to her school and community that makes her a truly standout student.
Angie Kovacs, one of Mikayla’s teachers says, ‘As a member of Business Professionals of America, Mikayla has served as a fundraising chairman and as our chapter historian. She has helped our chapter donate over $20,000.00 to Special Olympics, Honor Flight, and Autism Speaks. She placed in the top 10 at state competition with her individual presentation management project and has earned several regional awards.
Mikayla accepted both her Ambassador Torch Award and the Presidential Service Medal for her commitment to community service at the national BPA conference in Orlando this past May. She is also currently working towards her Congressional Service Award.’
Mikayla says one of her favorite service projects was the Appalachian Service Project.
"We rebuild homes for those affected by poverty or natural disaster. So that's a really big service project for us," said Mikayla.
Her teachers will tell you Mikayla sets the standard when it comes to being an excellent student and person.
"She's (Mikayla) an outstanding role model for the students, the teachers and the Batavia community and she's also the only student Batavia history that's earned the Presidential Service Medal," said Kovacs.
