Pats Laniak has nominated David Glassman at an Athens Patch Whiz Kid. After reading about David’s many accomplishments, it’s easy to understand that motivation—he is a whiz at many things!
David, 17, is a senior at Monsignor Donovan Catholic High School. He is the STAR student for Athens-Clarke County, which means he had the highest score on the Scholastic Aptitude Test in one sitting on the three-part SAT taken through the November test date of his senior year. A STAR student also must have a G.P.A. that puts them in the top 10 percent or top 10 students of their class.
Pats describes David as the embodiment of intelligence, integrity and energy.
Whether on the field or in the classroom, David’s relentless and positive pursuit of perfection is always tempered with a sense of humor and humility, she says. His commitment to community service is evidenced by more than 200 hours of volunteer work in the Athens community.
David has been elected as a leader of his class for four years. For his senior year, he was elected President of the entire student body.
Both his teachers and his peers respect him, according to Pats. David is a top athlete in multiple sports: cross country, soccer and golf. By himself, he recruited more than 40 individuals to donate blood at the school blood drive.
Congratulations, David, on being named the STAR student, and on being a Whiz Kid!
