This year’s recipient of the St. Pauline Visintainer Scholarship is Rachel M. Davis, a senior at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional High School.

Rachel attended St. Monica Catholic School in Sunbury from Pre-school through eighth grade. She was able to continue her Catholic education by attending Lourdes Regional.

Davis is a four-year letter winner for the Lourdes Red Raider Volleyball team under head coach Sara Shroyer. They participated in the Twin Valley Conference.

As a student athlete, Rachel was able to successfully balance her time as an athlete and student, well enough to rank #1 in her class. Rachel has maintained distinguished honors during all four years at Lourdes.

Rachel is involved in many community, school, and church activities. She is the President of the Respect Life Club, Vice-president of the National Honor Society, and President of the French Club. She is also a member of the French National Honor Society, Students against Destructive Decisions, Girls Action League and the Ski Club. She is also a very active volunteer with ARC Susquehanna Valley.

Rachel also finds time to be actively involved with her church Youth Group and participates as a lector and altar server. She had the wonderful opportunity during the summer of 2011 to attend the World Youth Day in Madrid, Spain, participating in activities with Pope Benedict XVI. Along with her father, Annie Self, and Elizabeth Korbich, Rachel presented Our Lady of Lourdes with a framed photograph of the grotto at Lourdes, France.

Rachel resides in Sunbury with her parents Kerry and Judy Davis, and her brother Kristopher, a senior at Lock Haven University. She is the granddaughter of Frank Sam Chesney and the late Theresa Pupo Chesney of Kulpmont. Davis plans to continue her education and major in Speech and Language Pathology at either Misercordia University or Duquesne.
