High 5 4 Kids: Matthew and Myles Springs

High 5 4 Kids: Matthew and Myles Springs

AIKEN, SC (WFXG) - Matthew and Myles Springs are 17-year-old twins, juniors at Aiken High School and two of the busiest people you might ever meet.

Matthew plays football, runs track and plays golf. Myles plays football, golf and soccer. But that's just the sports they're involved in.

"He's in BETA club. He's in the National German Honor Society. He's in the German Club," Mom Mela Springs said about Matthew. "He's in the National Technical Honor Society. He's in SERTEEN and he also writes for the school newspaper, the Hornet Herald. And he works at Mellow Mushroom."

Then there's Myles.

"He's in DECA, the BETA club, FCCLA, SERTEEN and the German Club," Melva said. "He also works at Mellow Mushroom."

"I just got invited to the join the National Honor Society Today," Matthew said.

But they admit, it's a juggling act sometimes.

"I'll try to go to the club meeting, get the jist of it, then go to my soccer meeting without being late," Myles said. "So it's a lot of bringing passes [to things] because you might be late, but you don't want to be late."

But Jason Redd, one of the twins' teachers, said they never miss a beat and are always the first to jump up in his class to get involved.

"They kind of attract other people," pre-engineering teacher Jason Redd said. "They're like my recruiters. They get other students to come to my class."

Mom, though, says it isn't always easy.

"They go to bed late and sometimes I do worry that they don't get enough sleep. But they have maintained it this far," Melva said.

Both Matthew and Myles said they plan on heading off to college after graduation and want to major in chemical engineering.
