Faith most important to Argyle senior

Jonathan Davis -- Argyle studentby John English

Jonathan Davis is involved in a variety of activities at Argyle High School, but the most important thing of all to him is his faith.

The Argyle senior is a member of Wise Guys, an organization that mentors younger students and that meets every other Tuesday for a very special purpose.

“It’s a small group of high school students that go to the Intermediate school and we talk to them about what it means to be wise, to have leadership and good character,” Davis said. “We just try to help them with whatever we can. I like being a part of it, because I think that kids need a good example to look up to, and I feel a bit responsible to set a good example and lead younger kids like that.”

Davis is also a member of the basketball team at Argyle and the  National Honor Society and said he is able to stay on top of things by being organized.

“You just have to prioritize,” Davis said. “I take care what I feel is important and find a way to balance it out. If that means I can’t go and hang out with friends than that is the way it is.”

Davis also plays club basketball over the summer, and when he is not playing, he helps out at a family friend’s snow cone stand.

Davis said when he imagines his life 20 years from now, he would like to have a couple of things.

“I would definitely have a family, because my family is the most important thing to me right now,” Davis said. “I think that 20 years from now, I would like to have my own family. As far as lifestyle, I would like to help spread my faith into others, and find something I really enjoy. It would need to be something I really like, but still have time to spread the word to others and spend time with friends and family.”

Davis is planning to attend Baylor University in the fall where he hopes to walk on to the basketball team.

The Argyle teen is ranked 15th in his graduating class with a 103.5 grade point average.
