Congratulations to Natasha Smith

Congratulations to Natasha Smith, an 11th grade (Junior) student at Marianna High School. She is the daughter of Chad and LaNita Smith of Marianna, Florida.

Natasha’s high Grade Point Average and ACT score qualified her to represent the district at the Awards Ceremony at the annual Sunshine State Conference in Orlando, Florida. She attended a recruitment fair, where she met representatives from some of Florida’s public and private colleges. There she was briefed on opportunities from the various institutions.

Natasha has chosen the medical field as a profession. Either a Medical Technologist or an Oncology Pharmacist are her occupational choices. Natasha stated, “Both of these occupations interest me because when I was 18 months old, I was diagnosed with Leukemia”. She is now in remission for 16 years and very thankful and blessed to be healthy. She further stated, “As an Oncologist or Medical Technologist, I could affect the lives of so many people and maybe even help someone who is going through what I went through.”

Congratulations to Natasha Smith!

Steve R. Benton, Sr. Superintendent of Schools Jackson County
