Bowling Green High School senior Avery Lewis has been recognized as the Exchange Club’s January Student of the Month.
Lewis has earned a grade point average of 4.42, which places her near the top of her class. And she has been inducted into both the National Honor Society and Spanish Honor Society.
A super-achiever, she has already taken 11 courses at Bowling Green State University, starting her sophomore year. She is taking two more courses this semester and will graduate from high school with credits from 13 college courses. The College Credit Plus program enables high school students to take college courses. It is not unusual to see students take one or two College Credit Courses, but 13 is very rare.
She has taken these courses in order to complete the general studies requirements towards a degree from the University of Dayton, where she plans to attend next year and major in pre-medical studies. It is her goal for a career in the field of medicine.
Lewis is also a leader. Last year she was elected junior class president and was elected again to lead the class this year. She is the captain of the high school girl’s basketball team and has received several Scholar Athlete Awards.
She attended St. Aloysius elementary and middle school and remains active in St. Al activities. This summer she was a volunteer for the Downtown Firefly Night events and has volunteered at high school orientation and registrations and works in the guidance office.
She also had a newspaper route for four years and last fall worked at Sundaze, an ice cream and pizza parlor in Haskins.
