Parents always tell their children to surround themselves with positive people.

Senior Jacob Brown is one of those people your parents are talking about.

Brown walks the halls of Shores everyday with a big smile on his face and a positive attitude in his heart.

Brown said he loves making friends and shares a close relationship with the many friends he has.

Smiling is not the only way Brown shows compassion to his friends.

“To me, being positive means to stick up for my friends and other people,” he said. “I love my friends, and I am very protective of them.”

For junior Zoie Willeke, her friendly encounters with Brown have become a daily routine.

“Jacob always tells me to have a good day, and likes to have conversations in the morning,” Willeke said. “On the days that I don’t see him, I realize it because it has become almost routine at school.”

Junior Emma Lynn also has all good thing to say about Brown.

“It’s always a highlight of my day seeing Jacob,” Lynn said. “He has a special soul.”

Brown will always have a special place in Lynn’s heart, she said.

“He makes an impact on people’s lives, and he is someone I will remember when I look back on high school,” Lynn said.

Even when Brown is having a bad day, he still walks around with a smile saying hello to all of his friends in the halls.

“It just makes me smile seeing someone smile and know that I am the reason why,” Brown said. “When I am feeling down, my friends make me laugh and smile when they say nice things about me.”

Special education teacher Deb Stevens said she appreciates Brown’s positive attitude be brings to class everyday.

“Jacob comes to class every day with a positive attitude. He is very caring and helpful to students,” Stevens said. “He is hardworking and makes an effort to do his best. He is a joy to have in the classroom.”

Apart from the classroom, Stevens sees the ways Brown is making an impact on the whole school.

“He is friendly and outgoing and knows everyone by name,” Stevens said. “He greets everyone with a smile.”

That smile is one that is known by all of Shores, and even though Brown doesn’t provide happiness for the recognition, he said it makes him happy to make others happy.

“It makes me so happy to know that so many people care about me,” Brown said. “I didn’t even realize how many people see me as a positive person.”
