For seniors Sarah and Grace Davis, school can be a daily struggle, despite the special private access to elevators. Guiding around an 11-story building in wheelchairs is no easy task. The twins were diagnosed at birth with cerebral palsy and these symptoms make it hard to travel through the large school on a daily basis. “It makes it hard for me to move.” said Grace Davis. “Particularly my legs so that’s why I’m in a wheelchair.”

Sara, the older of the twins, also contended with another health issue a few years ago. In 2012, she was diagnosed with cancer. Fortunately she successfully went through treatment and is now free of the disease.

A normal day for her consists of going to classes and playing sports in physical therapy. Both girls are capable math students. “My regular school day is an average person’s school day. I go to all the regular classes except I have special services like Physical Therapy and Adaptive PE,” said Grace.

“Sometimes, classes are a little bit difficult, but we use the assistance of technology,” continued Grace. “I use my iPad to type things.”

Another familiar technology helps the pair in math classes. “It’s easier to do it than on a computer because I can use Siri,” said Sara.

The two are actively involved in extracurricular activities. Last year Grace participated in Poetry Out Loud which is a competition where you memorize two poems and you go up on the stage and present them. Grace’s poem was by Echo by Christina Rossetti. “It was great to be part of that,” Grace said.

Sara is an avid artist and enjoys taking creative classes such as Music Appreciation and Technology with teacher Adam Brooks.

Both Sarah and Grace plan on pursing their own interests after high school graduation. Grace plans on attending Agnes Scott College in Decatur where she wants to major in psychology major. Sara wants to attend Wright State University in Dayton as an art major.

Their fans around the school wonder what accomplishments are ahead for these intrepid seniors. After their successful navigation of high school, they say they feel emboldened to take on whatever challenge comes next. “My personal quote is ‘don’t worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will worry about itself’,” said Sarah.
