MaKia Smith - Senior Spotlight

Makia Smith, a senior here at MVAOCOU, is the daughter of Brent and Melisa Smith. She has only attended one other school which was COU throughout elementary and middle school. Makia has three sisters, who are Makayla, Makarlie, Makenzie, and one brother, Dalton. She also has one dog named Kash. Makia wants to attend community college, but she is undecided on where. Her favorite high school memory was singing the national anthem during softball practice, and Anna Heck hearing it at her house. Miss Petersen is Makia’s favorite teacher because she is always there to talk. The advice Makia would give younger kids is, “Don’t take high school for granted, it really does go by fast.” Her favorite quote is, “The best is yet to be,” from Robert Browning. Good luck to you Makia!
