Jansan Davis of Chillicothe was the recipient of the Student Shout-Out for November at Spoon River College, and received a $100 Visa gift card. Davis was recognized by Makenna Barker, SRC advisor and volleyball coach for “being the kind of student you want in your classroom, the kind of athlete you want on the court, and the kind of person you want as a representative of Spoon River College.”
“I have heard from several students that Jansan is a great tutor, and I have witnessed her character as her coach for two years now,” said Barker. “She’s a helpful leader on the court as well as in the classroom, maintaining a 4.0 GPA. She treats her coaches, professors, and teammates with respect, and is one of the most caring people I have ever met. She is a great asset to Spoon River College.”
Davis serves as a Student Ambassador, a peer tutor in the Learning Resource Center, is a member of the SRC Snapper volleyball team, and was a recent recipient of the Illinois Community College Faculty Association scholarship. She plans to transfer to WIU and wants to be a speech pathologist.
The Student Shout-Out is an initiative that encourages any faculty or employee to nominate a student who deserves a special shout-out. “The reason can be big or small, but the important thing is that we hear about the positive and helpful things our students are doing,” said Abby Beck, TRIO advisor on the Macomb Campus.
