Knox Middle School student Sophie Flora was honored at the Knox Community School Board meeting Monday night. Middle School Principal Dave Miller said she had quite an athletic accomplishment at a recent track meet.
“Sophie came back from the Northern State Conference meet and I found out that she ran the fastest time in the history of the Northern State Conference in the 400-meter and she also missed the 200-meter dash by two-tenths of a second,” explained Miller. “She scored more points than another athlete in the Northern State Conference meet this year. It’s a great accomplishment for an eighth grader at Knox Middle School.”
The board commended Sophie on her accomplishment and told her that she has raised the bar for other students.
Sophie attended the meeting along with her parents, Travis and Amie Flora, her sister Josie Flora and her grandmother Kathy Norem.
