Joseph Spencer is a senior at South who may not be known by everyone however, when people say ‘Smiling Joe’, what Spencer is more commonly referred to, people’s eyes light up with recognition.
“The Reason I smile so much is because I just like to enjoy life.” Said Spencer (12), “and without all the people, I don’t think I would be who I am today.”
 Though Spencer only arrived at South last February, he is already enjoying his senior year at South and is excited for the second semester of his senior year.
 “I think the best thing [about senior year] is knowing a lot of people.  I think it’s fun to talk to a lot of people and see how different they are.” Said Spencer.
Aside from playing video games, hanging out with friends, and listening to music, Spence also really enjoys sports.  
So, if you happen to see Spencer around South, do not be afraid to wave or say hi, being friendly is something he appreciates.  And, if you do not know Spencer, maybe you will be able to recognize him by his trademark smile.
