A young lady who is planning a career in education is this week’s outstanding youth. Abbie McMillan is a 2022 graduate of Scottsboro High School.
Abbie is attending Northeast Alabama Community College with plans to transfer to Athens State University. She will be pursuing a degree in secondary English education.

This top student was also a member of FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), the Ink Club and Interact. She was the WWIC Student of the Week in 2020.
English is Abbie’s favorite school subject.
“I love reading and discovering that the power of literary classics is universal and never changes,” she says. “I have also discovered my passion for teaching from my admiration for several of my English teachers.”
Abbie was a Club Wildcat Teacher with the Scottsboro City Schools After-School Program and also has done some babysitting.
When this busy teen has free time, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family. She also likes working with children and going to concerts.
