her story: Blair has been a cheerleader at Alabama Christian Academy for four years, and she loves how close everyone is at the school. She strives to live her life without apologizing for who she is, and she identifies her role model as Kathryn Bandy for “her wisdom and strength through every situation.” She shared that she wishes to be remembered as “someone who shined the light of Jesus wherever they went and someone who wasn’t afraid to stand up for what they believed in.” When asked to share something most people don’t know about her, Blair shared, “I have been a vegetarian for almost a year now.” She has this advice for other high school students: “Don’t chase after useless things right now. Focus on your grades—that is what is really going to count in the long run.”
what’s next: Blair revealed that she has always been fascinated with the anatomy of the heart and how it functions, so her dream occupation is to become a cardiologist.
PG (parental guidance) rating: Blair shared her appreciation for her parents, saying, “They love me unconditionally and are so supportive of me in everything I do.”
parents’ perspective: Sonny and Melinda Davis admire their daughter’s love for the Lord and her dedication to living a Christian life. They shared, “Blair loves to help with elderly functions, she is a pen-pal with her handicapped aunt, and she is a very thoughtful person.” While Blair was growing up, Sonny and Melinda always tried to model Christ’s love and teach their children to treat others how they want to be treated.
parent-to-parent: Sonny and Melinda advise other parents to go a step further: “Don’t just love your child, show them you love them and stand by them in all that they do. Teach them to love the Lord, work hard, and never give up on their dreams.”
