The Wrangler: What are you going to miss most about George Ranch? 

Davis: I am going to miss being in a social environment because I doubt I’ll leave my house that much after high school. 

The Wrangler: What did you enjoy about being a basketball manager? 

Davis: I really enjoyed the sense of responsibility being a manager gave me. Normally, everything is taken care of by other people, but because I was there the longest, I was responsible for some things. 

The Wrangler: What was your favorite class at George Ranch? 

Davis: My favorite class was probably English. Besides me hating writing, I enjoyed being exposed to new kinds of books, and it’s also the only class where I understood what was happening. 

The Wrangler: What school will you be attending and why? 

Davis: I will be attending Wharton County Junior College for my prerequisites, and then Houston Baptist University. I chose HBU because they have a fast-track program I’m interested in. 

The Wrangler: What will you be majoring in and why? 

Davis: I will be majoring in psychology because I am interested in learning how mental illnesses and such develop. 

The Wrangler: What are some of your favorite hobbies outside of school? 

Davis: Outside of school, the only hobbies I have is eating and napping, almost to a competitive length. 

The Wrangler: What is most different about your senior year compared to your freshmen year? 

Davis: My freshman year, I struggled with my self-image and felt like I had to fulfill certain expectations, but in my senior year, I have accepted myself for who I am and no longer wish to meet expectations that I don’t agree with. 

The Wrangler: Do you think you have grown as a person since freshman year? 

Davis: I think that I’ve definitely grown as a person. I became more self aware of my faults and growths.

The Wrangler: What lessons have you learned along the way?

Davis: I have learned that in order to love others, I need to accept that not everything can be changed, but to still want more than the bare minimum. 

The Wrangler: Is there anything you would like to say to the upcoming freshmen? 

Davis: I feel like the incoming freshmen should know not to fake who they are in order to be accepted by people. Unless you are someone who wants to hurt others and their feelings, you will be able to find friends anywhere.
