Celebrating Our 2017 Graduating Seniors

We will be posting a new graduating senior profile each day leading up to May 26, the last day for seniors.
Graduating Senior:

Adara Davis
Western School of Technology and Environmental Science
(Randallstown Elementary School)

Tell us about a teacher, assignment, field trip, or extracurricular activity that had a significant impact on you during your years as a BCPS student?

Many teachers and extracurricular activities at Western School of Technology and Environmental Science have molded me into the person I am today, but I believe the automotive magnet impacted me the most. Being the only female in the automotive magnet and then obtaining a job as a technician at a foreign car auto repair shop gave me real life work experience that will last with me forever.

During your years as a BCPS student, what did you accomplish that you are most proud of? 

During my years as a Baltimore County Public Schools student, I have been the chairwoman of two nonprofit organizations, became a regional champion in basketball, and the only person in the automotive magnet to obtain an internship outside of school. As well, I remained on the honor roll through my tenure in high school. Out of these successes, I can honestly say becoming the president of the National Technical Honor Society was my greatest achievement, not because of the title, but due to the junior inductee ceremony. I was honored to give an encouraging speech to next year’s upcoming seniors.

What’s next for you? What are your college or employment plans immediately after graduation?

I have accepted an offer to attend Morgan State University pursuing a major in electrical engineering in the fall of 2017. I was awarded the Harriet Tubman Honors Scholarship. I look forward to being involved in many campus organizations and activities.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years, I will have achieved my electrical engineering degree and continued to pursue higher education. I see myself breaking the glass ceiling for women in the engineering field.

“Adara is a very likable, responsible, intelligent, and independent person.  She recognizes the importance of an education in today’s society and takes learning very seriously.  As an AVID student and as a member of the auto service technology magnet program, she excelled in the classroom.  Outside of class, Adara was active in our school’s lacrosse and basketball teams, SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions), The Robotics Club, Skills USA, The Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS). In fact, she served as the President for NTHS this past school year. What separates Adara from others is her positive attitude.  She is a young lady of character who influences those around her through her hard work and willingness to help others.  Her future plans are to study engineering at Morgan State University.”
