In Their Own Words: Ru Miles
This week marks a milestone for many high school seniors across Duval County: Graduation.
In this final installment of "In Their Own Words," we hear from Wolfson High School senior Ru Miles, who hopes to someday give back to other students the way her teachers have given to her.
She'll be heading to the University of North Florida to study education and English.
As graduation week comes to a close, here is Ru in her own words.
This story is part of American Graduate - a public media initiative made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to help local communities implement and identify solutions to address the high school dropout crisis.
