Jaleeyah Davis, a 2021 graduate of Clayton High School (CHS), received the St. Louis region of the Missouri Association of Secondary School Principals Educator of the Year Scholarship (SASSP). She was an active member of the Black Student Union during her time at CHS. She plans to major in Psychology and minor in business at Alabama State. She hopes to one day become a family therapist and open her own mental health facility.
Cameron Poole, Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer for the district, won educator of the year for the SASSP. The winner of the award is given a scholarship to give to a student of their choice. Poole wanted to choose a hardworking and successful student who has had to overcome adversity. Poole met with Dr. Regina Moore, CHS Assistant Principal, to help him select someone and Davis was the perfect choice.
"Jaleeyah has always taken her academics seriously. [She] was selected to receive this scholarship because of her persevering spirit and commitment to scholastic excellence," said Dr. Moore.
Congratulations to Jaleeyah and we wish her the best of luck on her journey!
