Michael Miller is a young man of few words, but his presence makes a powerful punch like it did his first two years as a football player at LaGrange High School. Now that he is about to graduate, he knows his time at both LaGrange and THINC College & Career Academy was meaningful and helped him finalize his postsecondary plans. Preparing for Georgia State University will be bittersweet for Miller because he will miss being a member of Future Business Leaders of America and the THINC Robotics class.
