Mary Davidson is a 2-year letter winner for soccer, a varsity cheerleader for football, a 4-year member of VB’s show choir The Association, and is participating in the upcoming musical Bye Bye Birdie.

      In the musical, Mary will play one of the lead roles Debra Sue. This is her second time participating in one of Van Buren’s musicals. At the show choir’s last performance at the Ada Music Festival, Mary and her fellow show-mates swept the Class C awards and won first in their class.

      Mary will be attending BGSU in the fall where she plans to major in human development and family studies. She chose her major because she would like to get involved in social work and teen rehab centers and help children who are less fortunate.

Why did you try out for the musical? I really had a lot of fun before and made friends with a lot of people that I wouldn’t typically talk to and I like how people outside of choir get involved so everyone can come together for something we all love.

If you could be any celebrity in the world, who would you be and why? Jennifer Lopez because I want to be on the American Idol show and be a judge.  She’s a beaut.

Who is your role model in life? Definitely my mom; she’s always been supportive and been there to lead me through high school. She pretty much has been the rock of our family.

What are you most looking forward to when you go to college? Meeting new people and just experiencing life and not having parents tell me what to do and having to make my own choices and stuff.

What do you do in your free time? I love to spend time with my family, friends, and boyfriend Austin. I like reading, watching movies, and singing in the car really loud!

Did you have any new year’s resolutions that you’re already struggling with? If so, what were they? I had told myself that I was going to start working out this year, but I just love eating and being lazy a little too much. It’s a work in progress!
