We have the ability

Have you ever stopped to consider why your windshield is so big and your rearview mirror is so small? The answer is obvious: What’s in front of you is much more important than what is behind you.
What has already happened, whether good or bad, is beyond one’s ability to control. The future, however, is yet to be written and is therefore well within one’s ability to influence.
Our past is special and unique because it belongs only to us. It should be relished for the true treasure that it is. It is important, however, that influential people in our lives and our community are forward thinking, that they are even more passionate about the days to come, and that they embrace the future with excitement and enthusiasm.
The past year at Brewton City Schools was filled with many successes. Scholarships were awarded, championships were won, community service was conducted, concerts were held, original art was produced, and traditions were restored. But rather than rest on our laurels, we must work diligently to prepare for what will always be the most important school year – the one on which we are preparing to embark. It is that unwritten future that we have the ability and obligation to craft and influence.
Brewton City Schools will always be successful because of the positive attitude and optimistic spirit of those challenged with leading our students into a bright future.
Our rearview mirror will display a constant reminder of past success, but our commitment to maintaining that tradition of excellence keeps our focus squarely on the road that lies ahead.
It’s a great time to be a T.R. Miller Tiger!
