Welcome to our fourth annual Women to Watch issue. We’re so excited about this year’s group of young ladies! From making a name in the creative writing world to racking up wins in pageants, gymnastics, and more, from running charities and earning scholarships to glowing with simple, everyday kindness, these gals are truly doing the incredible things we love to feature. We even have one of the few female Chinook pilots in the world! Let’s start off with our four cover girls. You’re going to be fascinated by their stories – and floored by their terrific advice!
“Do what you love, work hard, and surround yourself with good people!” Tori Davis, age 18
There’s a long-held misperception that strong athletes typically aren’t strong scholars and vice versa. Tori Davis proves that paradigm wrong. A senior at Starr’s Mill, she serves as the senior class president (in fact, this is her third year as class president) and is a member of the Spanish and National Honor Societies. She’s also president of the student government, vice president of her school’s Beta Club, and an AP scholar with distinction. She also won the American Legion Citizenship Award.
In addition, Tori competed on the Starr’s Mill varsity cheerleading squad and was awarded the 2019 State of Georgia Cheerleader of the Year Runner-Up, the 2019 Varsity Cheerleading Highest GPA Award, and the Varsity Cheerleading Regional Champion.
A 2019 Posse Scholar, Tori will attend Texas A&M University in the fall as a political science major and wants to become a corporate attorney. She is an active member of the Fellowship of Love Church in Fayetteville, where she volunteers with the youth and works in children’s church. She loves to travel to different countries, coach cheerleading, read, and hang out with friends.
Tori’s nominator says she is “a prime example of a leader, go-getter, and someone who continues to make a difference.”
