About Michael:

Michael Miele is recognized for attaining extraordinary levels of scholarship at RMHS while demonstrating passion and drive in pursuit of his athletic, career, and intellectual goals.

Michael gets everything he can out of the academic offerings at RMHS. Currently a second semester senior, his schedule is packed with a demanding array of classes that includes five AP classes and an honors class. What is more impressive than the classes Michael takes is his approach to those classes. Ms. Lynch, his honors accounting teacher says, “Mike always puts 100% effort into his work, asks thought-provoking questions that benefit the entire class, and when absent from class, is very responsible in making up all of the work missed. He is a strong self- starter with a positive/uplifting attitude and a pleasure to have in Honors Accounting.” And Ms. Mooney, the teacher of Michael's current favorite class AP English Literature adds, “Mike puts in consistent conscientious effort, and functions as a self-reliant, responsible, and inquisitive student!”

Michael plans to study political science or government in college, likely on the pre-law track. He has done an exemplary job of using his time in high school to serve his college and career plans. At school, Michael has been instrumental in reviving the Mock Trial club, representing RMHS with his fellow club members as they gain valuable experience with legal interpretation and the practice of rhetoric. Michael has been extremely busy pursuing his goals outside of school. He has completed internships with State Representative Brad Jones, at the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, and at the Volunteer Lawyers Project. He has been a tour guide at the State House and worked last fall on the winning campaign of State Representative Rich Haggerty.

Michael has done all of this while also excelling as a defenseman on the Rocket hockey team, serving as vice president of the senior class, and holding down a leadership position with the RMHS chapter of the National Honor Society. The RMHS community wishes Michael the very best and knows that he is sure to make the most of what his college experience will offer in the years to come.
