Teen’s studies give her perspective, compassion

For Catherine Miller, history means more than the study of past events, and literature isn’t just about getting lost in a compelling story.

The Paducah Tilghman High School senior said the subjects provide her with insight into today’s problems, as well as a way of understanding other people.

Miller said a quote from her favorite author, John Green — “There is no them, there are only facets of us” — speaks to the importance of understanding the past.

“I think that’s probably the most important thing to remember,” she said of the quote. “That’s why I like history and literature, because it gives you a sense of empathy.”

Catherine Miller, daughter of Bobby and Laurie Miller, is the Mid-Continent University Teen of the Week.
