CHAMPAIGN -- Students heard words of wisdom from an Olympian. Tyler McGill returned to his high school Wednesday night.

He was keynote speaker at Central's Academic Letter Awards Program. Students get it for keeping a good grade point average throughout the year. McGill was part of this year's U.S. Olympic Swim Team which won gold. 

McGill also doubled as supportive big brother. His sister was one of the students getting the award.
