Hoops - Jeremis Smith's Sister, Journalist

Jeremis Smith's sister, Jerin, wrote this journal entry in the Dallas Star / Telegram and mentioned this to say about watching GT / BC in Boston (they were on an official visit to Harvard U):

While I was in Boston, Georgia Tech was in town playing Boston College. Normally, I get to see my brother Jeremis play when they are at home in Atlanta. It was quite an experience to see how they were treated on the road. My brother was not too popular with the BC fans. Surprisingly, he voiced his support for Harvard as well. He really caught me off guard. I know he didn't realize it, but his words of encouragement meant the world to me.

This week I also received my school transcript and am proud to say that I have raised my grade-point average and class rank. My GPA is now a 4.1, and I am ranked No. 9 in a class of 202. It took a lot of hard work, and without the help of excellent mentors, coaches, instructors, genuine friends and family, I never could have achieved any of this.

Nice going Jerin.
