Meet Miss Miles College
Dear Miles College Family,
I am Amanda J. Vaughn, I love God, and I love Miles College. I know that I would not be the Phenomenal Woman I am without the love of God and the support of my institution. I was born in Stockton, California and spent my developing years in Cincinnati, Ohio. My life thus far has been filled with a great deal of love. My parents, John L. and Donna R. Vaughn, have always put love at the top of their list of gifts to “the princess” and they continue to do so. Being a product of my environment, I show love to those around me. Our institutional motto, Sapientia et Pax et Amor Omnibus makes me feel truly connected to Miles College. “Knowledge and Peace and Love for all” is what we need, and I am determined to spread it.
I vow to do more than represent Miles College through my appearance and eloquence. I will represent through actions as well because I am a hardworking woman and “actions speak louder than words.” My institution is important to me and I will do everything I can to uphold its name. During my years at Miles, I have served in various leadership positions, and it gives me great honor to further serve my institution in this new capacity. I look forward to an exciting year filled with new traditions, rigorous challenges, and tremendous adventures.
Our eminent president, Dr. George T. French, Jr. stated, “It is a new day at Miles College. It is no longer business as usual” and I fully agree with him. As proud Mileans, let us elevate our minds and go higher. We should achieve greater, think smarter, and excel high above all others. Why? Because, We Are Miles College. At the Honors Convocation of my sophomore year, I said, “for us (Mileans), the sky is not the limit, it is a common destination.” I meant that excellence is the norm for us. Not only do we operate at sky level, but we encourage and help others to do so as well. Join me in excellence for the 2014-2015 scholastic year as I serve as your 78th Miss Miles College.
Amanda J. Vaughn, Miss Miles College 2014-2015
