HIGH POINT, N.C. -- An Allen Jay Middle School Preparatory Academy student is the poster child of a class act.

Taj Jones, 12, is a seventh-grader at Allen Jay Preparatory Academy. He plays percussion, participates in school-wide events and strives to be the best leader possible.

"I may not be a president or someone in the government, but I want to make sure I have a positive impact in people and a positive impact left on the earth," he said. "When people say my name, they're going to have something positive to say."
