“Alex is a kind, good-hearted person and is a great student,” said Felicia Grooms, Batavia High School Guidance Counselor. “He is truly an exemplary young man who works hard for his community.”

White is ranked in the top five percent of his class. He carries over a 4.0 weighted grade point average and has maintained this while taking the most rigorous course load available at BHS including honors and AP classes in all core subject areas.

He scored a perfect 36 subject score on the ACT in both English and Reading. White has been Class President since his freshman year, is vice president of Student Council and is a member of the National Honor Society.

He serves as a senior mentor for freshman students and is one of two students chosen as a mentor for the Look to Clermont leadership program in conjunction with The Ohio State University after completing the Look program last school year.

Extracurricular activities include being a member of the BHS and AAU basketball teams since his freshman year.

White was a nominee for the Cincinnati.com 2012 Sportsman of the Year as well as being chosen SBC Second Team All League. He is an integral member of the Mock Trial team, having earned “best witness” honors at the regional competition level.

Being involved with the community is something that is second nature to White. He has been a church league youth basketball coach, a student volunteer for the Athletic Boosters, a basketball camp coach, and the chairman for fundraising ballgames.

When not in class or involved with school events, White works at Nothin’ But Net sports complex as a timekeeper and concession worker. He enjoys spending spare time with his family and friends.

The Batavia Rotary Club recognizes one high school student from BHS each month throughout the regular school year. Students are nominated for this award for their school work and service to their community in keeping with the Rotary motto, “Service Above Self.”

The Batavia Rotary Club meets Tuesdays at 7 a.m. at the Hawk Building on Taylor Road, Clermont County Airport. Prospective new members and visiting Rotarians are always welcome.
