Davis honored in statewide magazine


Natalie Davis, a student at Tallassee High School, is honored as a Teen Spotlight in Potential Magazine for excelling in her academics and leadership.

Natalie has a hand in a wide variety of activities at Tallassee High School. She is a member of Mu Alpha Theta, serves as class president, maintains a place on the honor roll, and participates in the softball and dance teams. Outside of school, she volunteers her time at her church and the Association of Christians in Tallassee for Service (ACTS), an organization that serves as a clearing house to assist people in their times of need. Through her service to others, she hopes to be remembered “for being kind, loving, forgiving, and having the biggest heart.” When asked to share her best piece of advice for an incoming high school student, Natalie answered, “Don’t take any moment for granted and don’t wish it all away. It’ll be gone quicker than you know it, and you’ll then wish you could have it all back.”

Potential Magazine is a multimedia resource for parents of college-bound teenagers. In each issue, high achieving students in the 7th-12th grade are featured and entered to win the $500 "Reach Your Potential" scholarship awarded in January and May.

Teens are recommended by their school or community leaders for excelling in one or more of the following areas: academics, business, leadership, philanthropy, overcoming adversity, citizenship and community service, athletics, and the arts. Potential Magazine's advisory board chooses teens to feature in each issue and select the scholarship winner in May from each of the finalists.
