Nathan Miller, 11

Print Managing Editor

What three words would you choose to describe yourself? 

Sociable, impulsive, and dedicated.

What is your favorite restaurant?

I really like Panera Bread because I go there with my friends a lot.

Why did you join newspaper? 

Mr. Caulton didn’t have enough people on newspaper staff so he passed out this thing in English nine honors that asked if you’d be interested in yearbook or newspaper and I didn’t want to limit my options so I said I was “slightly interested in both” and then at the end of the year he said “you can take either” and I just chose newspaper because I thought it would look good on a college application.

If you were in a Witness Protection Program, where would you live and what would be your new name? 

I would live in a small Midwestern town and my name would be William Caulton. I would be the advisor of a newspaper staff, but it wouldn’t last long because I’d miss my friends and come back to Avon.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 

I don’t know, I don’t have 20/29 vision. But seriously, I don’t know, I don’t like to think about it. I hope I’m having a good time and that I’m surrounded by people that care about me and maybe… married.

Print Managing Editor

What three words would you choose to describe yourself? 

Pessimistic, Indian, and quiet.

What is your favorite restaurant?

I like Round Table Pizza, it’s in San Francisco.

Why did you join newspaper? 

I’m a big fan of the truth and I think it’s important for people to know the truth and yeah… the Avon Echo isn’t covering any ground breaking news, but if I wanted to get into journalism… I could, you know? This could be a stepping run. 

If you were in a Witness Protection Program, where would you live and what would be your new name? 

If I told you, then anyone could catch me. 

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 

I’ll be 26 and if everything goes well, I’ll hopefully be finishing up med school.
