Senior Spotlight: Sarah David

Senior Spotlight: Sarah David

One of our final Senior Spotlights is on Sarah David, who has been a light at RMA for the last 10 years. Sarah is a great addition to our RMA family, always fun to be around and joke with. I’ve had the pleasure of playing basketball with Sarah for the last few years in both Middle and Upper School, and she was always an amazing teammate and willing to be a friend to anyone who needed it. Those who know her well describe Sarah’s personality as outgoing and bubbly, and she describes herself similarly as “cheerful and talkative” and also as “opinionated.” 

Sarah has been active in many different school clubs like Key Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Stronger Together (which helps the RMA Exceptional Children’s Program), the Kindness Club, and the Anatomy Club. Her participation in these clubs is even more impressive when you account for the rigor of her classes this year, which include AP Biology, Calculus Honors, English 12 Honors, and AP Environmental Science. Sarah’s electives include music and ceramics, which both allow her to exhibit her creative side. Throughout her time at RMA, Sarah has received many academic awards, including spots on the A Honor Roll in grades 10 and 11, Academic Excellence in Biology I, Excellence in Sculpting, Academic Distinction in Spanish II, and the Junior Class Service Award for her many hours spent working on perfecting our 2022 prom decorations. In her little free time, Sarah enjoys hanging out with friends and family or at the gym. She also works for her family’s business (Wheeler & Woodlief) in the summer months and during school breaks.

Sarah applied to Meredith College, LSU (she is from New Orleans!), ECU, NC State, and UNCW. She will be attending Meredith College in the fall majoring in interior design. We wish her the best of luck in this next chapter of her life and can’t wait to see how much she will grow!
