Skyline Student Athlete of the Month Jaida Knighten.


Winton Woods seventh grader Jaida Knighten has been named the district’s Skyline Student Athlete of the Month for May. Knighten is a valuable member of the soccer and basketball teams. She participated in these sports while carrying a 4.0 grade point average.


“Jaida has been such a great asset to the Winton Woods Middle School athletic program,” said her basketball coach Gila V. Johnson. “She is a force to be reckoned with, and don’t let her size fool you. During the winter season, Jaida was a great leader on and off the court. She was one of our top scorers and a great ball handler. It was a pleasure coaching Jaida. She has a passion for the game of basketball, and I look forward to seeing what’s in store for her future years as a Warrior.”
