Here you'll find student spotlights and program updates!
We have to highlight one of our amazing students, Addie Davis! Addie is a senior this year at Muncie Central High. You would be surprised that Addie used to wrestle in middle school and she loves to weight lift. In her free time, you can catch church or the gym—working out makes Addie feel strong and it has been a great addition to her self-care journey and mental health and as for the church, she needs it to survive.
Addie’s greatest accomplishment has been being a nominee for the 2020 Youth Salute Leader. She shared, “not just anyone gets this award and it was amazing to be recognized for my hard work and character in school.”
As for Addie’s goals after high school, she simply wants to achieve at a higher level. She plans to attend college and master in whatever she chooses to study. Addie has not made a decision on a University or major yet but she has faith that God will guide her in those choices.
Advice from Addie:
“We only get one life and I truly want to live it to the fullest. I am just taking it one step and one day at a time to get there.”
Keep your mind focused on where you are headed. Don’t get caught up in friends that don’t do you any good or not really applying yourself to your work. High school matters and you have to work hard to see experience greater after-effects.
