Many educators in the area will be spending time when they can during the upcoming school year trying to tell their students that the things they do in school can effect them for a life time. If they need proof, they can point to the story of Sylvania Ohio native Mitchell Miller. Miller saw his hopes for a career in the National Hockey League fall by the wayside last year. Miller was drafted by the NHL’s Arizona Coyotes but was cut immediately by the team after reports surfaced that he had bullied a disabled black fellow student when he was a young teen in high school. Miller has been signed to a contract to play for the minor-league Tri-city Storm in Nebraska but he’ll no doubt make just a fraction of what he would have made in the NHL. We’d all agree that bullying is totally unacceptable behavior. I have wondered as this story was unfolding over the past year how many of the people who were so quick to criticize Miller for his actions would want details of everything they did when they were teenagers exposed for public view. The story of Mitchell Miller has been well publicized. I just hope youngsters with a life time of goals and expectations ahead of them are paying attention. That’s the way I see it.
