New SBS Family - The Davis Family
Finding the right school for your child can be a daunting task. When freshman Langston Davis’ mom began the search before his freshman year, she knew to go to God’s Word. Jesus said, “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish and it will be given you.” - John 15:7. And, that’s just what she did.
“Second Baptist School’s values align with my family’s core values. When you find a school that also aligns with the fulfillment of your child’s God given abilities, it is an easy decision,” exclaimed Ranessa Davis, Langston’s mother. “We have always maintained a focus of keeping God first in our family. This focus allows for personal relationship with God for anyone who seeks to fulfill his/her purpose in life. SBS presented itself in a manner that posed both God first and a continuous pursuit of excellence from day one.”
Langston is no stranger to success. This past fall, Langston’s first year at SBS, Fox 26 featured the football team to kick-off the season and their state semi-finals run. It was a victory that made a lasting impression on the entire team.
“The most defining moment for me, as a parent, was Langston’s first touchdown on the varsity football team. Not because of the touchdown itself, but the response from his teammates. They congratulated him with such excitement and as a new student athlete, that sort of excitement meant the world to him.”
The ninth grader from Houston, who started on the junior varsity football team at the start of this school year and moved up to varsity, hopes to play football at the collegiate level. With a heart for Christ and three more years ahead of him at SBS, Langston is well on his way.
“Langston has always been an extraordinary child with a love for God, a strong sense of self awareness and confidence in his capabilities. As a parent, my responsibility is to foster his development to become a productive member of society and to be the best person he can possibly be. SBS sets him up for success in both of these areas.”
