Gavin Davis from Manchester has been a student at Jesse Remington for the past year and a half. His favorite class during this time has been the Chess project class. Many across campus, both students and faculty, have played against him and can attest to his skill and mastery of the game. Particularly of note, his chess skills are recognized from his leading the class this past January, his international ranking of 1600, and beating a Chess Master during his mission trip to Hungary. Beyond playing chess, Gavin attributes his trip to Hungary as one of the highlights of his high school career; as well as the Fall Mountain Retreat this past fall. Both experiences provided opportunities for Gavin to grow in relationships with those around him; particularly in Hungary where he built long lasting friendships with the teenagers there and he grew in wisdom from conversations with his host family in Hungary as well. One bit of wisdom he has observed throughout his high school career is his desire to “sharpen those around him” as described in his favorite verse Proverbs 27:17. Reflecting on his classmates graduating this year, Gavin says that while quirky and weird, he knows they are capable of great things and is excited to see what the future holds for them. For his immediate future, Gavin will be attending college in the fall with a major in either business or criminal justice.
