Josiah Smith, a senior at Noblesville High School, has taken his love for both learning and socializing, and found a way to excel in both areas.

His mother, Lakeesha Smith, says she is proud that Josiah has applied himself and worked hard to achieve all of his goals.Josiah Smith

“Josiah has excelled not just academically, but also socially,” Lakeesha Smith says. “Not only does he have an outstanding GPA, but he has also managed to maintain this GPA while being involved in several school activities where he holds a leadership position. I couldn’t be prouder of him. He’s involved in a lot, and always makes sure he does a good job at whatever he’s doing.”

Smith notes that Josiah has been a Thespian Troupe 8118 officer for two consecutive years. “This year Josiah, along with a partner, were awarded state champions for their duet acting performance,” she says.

Josiah also goes out of his way to assist other people as much as he can. He has been an inspiration to other students.

“Josiah loves to help people,” Smith says. “He is a strong advocate for all people to be treated fairly, regardless of their ethnicity or sexual orientation.”

Josiah also comes to the aid of people who are struggling with depression and other problems.

“He is also a huge supporter of mental health support, and has served as a member, and is also the current president, of Bring Change to Mind, Noblesville High School’s club that supports mental health,” Smith says.

Josiah SmithBring Change to Mind’s mission is to end stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness.

Josiah doesn’t limit himself to those school programs.

“Currently Josiah is also the boys dance captain for Singers, the show choir at Noblesville High School,” Smith says. “While serving as the president of Thespian Troupe 8118, he is also one of two students from Noblesville High School who serves as a state thespian officer for the state of Indiana. He really loves the theater and working with other people.”

Smith says Josiah loves performing.

“He has also participated in several musicals such as ‘Bring it On,’ and ‘Mean Girls,’ just to name a few,” Smith says. “He loved being in both shows.”

Josiah, whose favorite subjects are science and English, also finds time to have fun when he isn’t doing schoolwork or participating in school activities.Josiah Smith

“He loves hanging out with friends and shopping at the Goodwill bins,” Smith says.

Josiah also loves living in Noblesville.

“He loves the sense of community and warmness that is felt from many in our town,” Smith says. “Josiah is a wonderful human being. He is caring, funny and wicked smart. I am honored to be his mom and look forward to seeing him excel in the future.”
