Davis has been Ruud’s stu-dent aide for three years, andshe’s also president of theFBLAchapter.“Any task I give her, she isable to complete in a timelymanner,” Ruud said. “Shedraws information out of oth-ers. I’ve seen younger stu-dents approach her and offeran idea, and she’s very gra-cious.”Ruud said Davis not onlyconsiders the ideas, she fol-lows through.“I see her future as beingvery bright,” Ruud said. “Shehas everything she needs tomake it happen, and she alsohas the drive and determina-tion to see her goals throughto completion.”But Davis would rather bebehind the scenes than in thespotlight, Ruud said, and shealways acts with integrity andhonesty.Her favorite classes are herwood shop classes.“They’re fun,” she said.She especially likes herteacher, Jack Spencer.“He has a solution foreverything,” she said.Spencer said Davis is verymature and diligent, exceptwhen the occasional bout of senioritis hits. She’s meticu-lous about her work.“She’s just one of those stu-dents you really can’t say any-thing bad about,” Spencersaid.Davis spends her summersworking as a lifeguard.“You get to work with thekids and be out in the sun-shine,” she said.Davis’parents, Jeff andCarrie Davis, have encour-aged her to do whatever shewants, but their example hashad an influence on her deci-sion to teach elementaryschool.“I really like to work withkids, and I know from my par-ents’experience it would befun to teach people,” she said.“Really it all starts with teach-ers.”Ruud is one teacher whowill be sad to see Davis go.“I’m going to miss her,”Ruud said. “And I’ve told herfrequently that I think sheshould not graduate this yearand continue to stick aroundand be my right-hand person.But I think she’s going to optfor graduation, as she should.Life awaits.”
