London High School senior Clayton Geib is the March London Rotary Student of the Month. Students are selected by the London High School administration based on the following criteria: academic and extracurricular achievement and positive character.
Geib is second in his class with a 4.0 grade-point average.
Geib has played football for four years earning three varsity letters. This past season he was named Academic All-Ohio by the Ohio High School Football Coaches Association. As an offensive lineman Geib was named All-Ohio Third Team. He was named First Team All-Central District and First Team All-MSL Ohio Division.
For three years Geib has started for the London High School Quick Recall Team. He appeared with the team on WOSU’s In The Know broadcast this past season.
Geib has been in National Honor Society for three years. He has been active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for two years. Geib has played saxophone for London’s Jazz, Concert, and Pep Bands for three years.
Geib’s favorite class at London High School has been the AP Chemistry class he took last year. This year his favorite class is AP Government. Geib is inspired by London High School AP Calculus teacher Stephen Clines. He states, “Mr. Clines has a passion for his work as a teacher, and he is helping me to prepare for my future career in science by challenging me to solve difficult problems.”
Clines commented that “Geib likes to know how things are linked together or why things happen, and as such, he takes learning to a higher level.”
Geib plans to major in chemistry with the goal of earning a Ph.D. He is looking at colleges where he will have the opportunity to play Division III Football.
