Mia Knight is making the most out of her experience at Guyer High School. She’s member of the cross country and track teams, the Key Club and an officer in the Student Council.
“I enjoy being so involved, because it makes school fun for me,” Knight said. “By being involved, I get to spend more time with friends and really enjoy my years in high school.”
Knight, 16, carries a 4.6 grade point average at Guyer High School, but said that of all the activities she is involved in, it was one of her sports that stood out most this past school year.
“Truthfully, I love what I’m involved in for different reasons,” Knight said. “However, I would say that this year I really enjoyed track because I accomplished a lot of the goals I had set for myself.”
Knight PR’d in the 100-meter hurdles (17.49) and the 300-meter hurdles (48.94) this past school year for the Guyer track team.
The Lantana teen said the best part about going to Guyer is the number of options students have when it comes to extracurricular activities. Knight said she genuinely looks forward to going to school each day.
“Because our school is so big, I will most likely not get to know everyone,” Knight said. “I mean, it is pretty much inevitable. However, there are a lot of organizations to join. I really like that I have so many clubs to choose from and really find where I belong at Guyer.”
Knight said she would like to pursue a career in Zoology saying she “really enjoys nature and animals.” She added that being a younger person today is a bit of mixed bag.
“It is hard for various reasons these days,” Knight said. “But, there are also many things our generation has that past ones do not. The technology we have now gives us more opportunities for learning and fun.”
