Paige David is the epitome of a phenomenal student-athlete here at Pleasanton High School. Sitting in the top 10% of this year’s graduating class, Paige also holds two officer positions in our student body and is one of three captains for our Pleasanton Women’s Varsity Soccer team. She has worked hard all four years of high school to get where she is now, and it is beyond admirable to watch her put her mind to something and not stop until she gets it.
In junior high, Paige had no interest in partaking in the sport of soccer, instead opting to be team manager. When reaching high school, a flip switched and she tried out for the team, ultimately beginning what got her to where she is today. “Paige’s story is one I’ll tell my future athletes for years to come. She started her freshman year having never laced up a pair of soccer cleats, and she is finishing her senior year as a varsity captain,” states Coach Joseph. He is beyond proud of the progress Paige has made in this sport, her work ethic does not go unnoticed. “She’s easily one of my biggest role models in this sport and in life, always pushing me to be a better version of myself whether we are on or off the field,” said Maddie Brymer, sophomore.
On top of her athleticism and her captain position, Paige holds two more leadership positions for our student body. Always pushing herself over the top, Paige is treasurer of the National Honor Society and secretary of Student Council. “As a student council officer, Paige has many duties such as leading meetings, making decisions for the club, attending additional meetings and making deliveries on behalf of the club. Paige brings her unique flair to the club with her quirky ideas and humor. Some of the best ideas this school year were Paige’s. She has definitely made a distinctive mark on the 2022-2023 student council,” says StuCo sponsor and librarian, Mrs. Moos.
Planning ahead has always been one of Paige’s most admirable traits. Which is why when senior year began, she already knew what college she was attending. Paige is planning on attending Texas A&M University to major in Psychology and hopefully become a child psychologist. With the way Paige sets high goals for herself and stops at nothing to achieve them, the journalism staff has no doubt she will do amazing things in her future. Way to go Paige!
