In an effort to recognize students that are showing perseverance and striving to achieve, Noblesville Schools held its inaugural Miller STARS (Students That Are Reaching Success) award ceremony on March 13 at Noblesville East Middle School. The program was developed by the NEMS Community Building Team and faculty members nominated students. Officials said the awards aren’t based on top academic performers and honor students who otherwise do not always get recognized and can often be overlooked. This year’s Miller STARS include:
Sixth-grade: Juan “Daniel” Arreola, LeJeida Arreola, Phoebe Benson, Carter Davis, Isabel De Anda, Luke Deakyne, Austin Duncan, Bailey Fitzpatrick, Moriah Hamilton, IceLeigh Hill, Ellen Kocher, Deirdre Leib, Nevaeh O’Dell and Madison Taylor.

Eighth-grade: Quinton Abston, Rafael Aguilera, Faith Billings, Anton Capangpangan, Gracie Elmer, Jasmine Griesinger, Yiwen He, Natalie Kraay, Logan Long, Mya Lotarski, Megan Montag, Kayla Owens and Ryan Silva.
