Jimmy is a true vision of how determination, strong will and perseverance result in success! Jimmy certainly has the qualities I can see in a future Litchfield Middle School International Baccalaureate student who strives for intellectual, social, emotional and physical well-being. Jimmy is a true inspiration.
