A student who can be counted on

Miller Middle School science teacher Julie Miller can count on eighth grader Jordan Smiley to be there for her.

“He does anything I ask and is always willing to help others,” Miller said. “He’s just an all-around great kid and a good role model.”

Smiley feels it’s important to take his school work seriously so he can go to college and get a good job when he is an adult. One day, he would like to become an athletic trainer.

He said science is one of his favorite subjects in school.

“It’s fun to learn about things like science experiments,” Smiley said.
