After a rough start academically at Miller Middle School, seventh grader Myles Mitchell finally had things click.
His teachers have taken notice and his grades have positively reflected the change.
"Myles has grown up a lot in the last three months," said Susan Ferneau, secretary in the counseling services office. "He has blossomed and the teachers are saying he is using his time more wisely."

Mitchell admitted he wasn't turning in his homework on time earlier this school year and now has made the extra effort to do better in school. His favorite subject is social studies.
"It's fun," he said.
Ferneau also mentioned that Mitchell has an improved outlook overall and a more positive attitude.
"He has a smile that's a mile wide and definitely adds a spark to any room he enters," Ferneau said.
