Moscow-Alexandra Davidson

Published 5/29/2012 in Youth In Excellence

Alexandra Davidson, graduating senior at Moscow High School, is straightforward when it comes to giving advice, to both her fellow graduates and incoming freshmen.

As salutatorian of her class, her advice to her fellow graduates is, "Don't give up on your dreams."

Her own dream is to obtain a medical degree and become a surgeon.

"Science interests me, as well as the study of the brain and the study of people," Davidson wrote in a questionnaire provided to The Telegram.

This explains why her favorite classes in high school were science, psychology and sociology.

Davidson carried a 3.80 grade-point average and made the Principal's Honor Roll, Superintendent's Honor Roll and the Kansas University Honors Program.

Her most memorable moment of high school occurred at graduation.

"Receiving all of my scholarships at graduation, and realizing that all of my hard work had paid off, was my fondest memory," she said.

She was also active in sports during high school. She played volleyball, basketball, softball and ran track.

Despite her participation in sports, she said her least favorite class was P.E.

"Because I wasn't very good at kickball or Wiffle ball," she said.

Her other activities included being in an all-school play and the German Exchange Program. She was also a member of Kansas Association for Youth, student council, 4-H, forensics and band. She also participated in scholar's bowl.

A lifelong resident of Moscow, Davidson enjoys reading, taking walks and hanging out with her family.

Her advice to freshmen is simple.

"Be yourself," she said.

Being herself is how she hopes her classmates will remember her.

"I hope to be remembered as someone driven, opinionated and confident," she said.

Her plan is to attend Dodge City Community College for a year to obtain her associate's degree in pre-medicine.

"Then I hope to transfer to Kansas University to finish out my degree," she said.
