Selwyn Davis is a senior here at Page High School. Davis participated in wrestling this past winter and went to States, along with Tremel Hester and Christian Brown. He has many memorable moments that he will carry with him to college. Continue to read to find out his favorite and least favorite things about high school. 

What was your favorite moment in high school?

High school is filled with many memories, both positive and negative. Some positive memories for Selwyn include making states for wrestling, celebrating wins, and having a lot of competition. “Winning isn’t winning without a fight,” said Davis. 

What advice would you give to your past self going into high school?

There are lessons to be learned from those who are older. Davis has experience with testing, studying, and homework tips. He said “Staying engaged during class and participating is really important going through high school. Making sure you have a goal set so you have something to work towards is something I would enforce.”

What is your favorite relationship you’ve made?

Davis has had 4 years to grow and develop relationships. “My favorite relationship I made throughout high school was definitely with my wrestling coach. He came in my sophomore year, and it’s been amazing ever since.” Our relationships with coaches and teachers have a big impact on how we absorb information. Having a good relationship with those mentors can be the difference between success and failure.

What are your plans for after high school?

Depending on our goals, many students have different ways they go about their education. While some have aspirations to play at a high collegiate level of a specific sport, some don’t even want to go to college. Davis has been afforded the opportunity to have a full ride to North Carolina Central! “This has been an amazing experience to be accepted into NCC. I am so excited to continue my education throughout the next 4 years,” he says. Go Eagles! 

What are you going to miss the most about your high school experience? 

Along with the freedom of no more high school drama, crowded halls, and college applications, there are things about high school that make it really fun. All the sport events, class projects with your friends, and even school dances. Davis said “I am going to miss all of the friends I made here at Page. When you spend four years with your graduating class, you feel like you really get to know a lot of people. But I am very excited for a fresh start in college.”
