Meet Miss Miles College
Dear Miles College Family,
It is a great day at Miles College. I am delighted and honored to represent you and the Miles College family as the reigning 2013-2014 Miss Miles College. Throughout my matriculation as an undergraduate honor student, I have been afforded the opportunity to experience many of the great and exciting changes to the College. Thanks to President George T. French, Jr. and his dynamic vision and leadership for our illustrious institution. We have three new buildings under construction simultaneously.
As I reflect upon my stay here at Miles, I can honestly say, “Miles College is indeed my home.” It was Miles College that helped me to take my education more seriously. For this reason, I am most grateful. Because of my love for Miles College, I had the opportunity to examine and research the history of the College. Through my research, it was revealed that traditionally, graduations were held outside on the College’s lawn. Likewise, Miss Miles College’s Coronations were previously held in Brown Hall Auditorium. I was very excited to learn about the tradition of Miles because I am a traditionalist. I asked myself the question, “Where did the tradition go?” After asking myself that question, I thought it would be a great idea to bring the Coronation back to the College.
The rationale for having the Coronation on-campus is to bring family, friends, alumni, and potential students to see the recent developments and the growth of the institution. This will also gain community participation for support of the institution. As we know, the 50th year anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement, and Miles College students were active vessels during the movement. This is significant because I am being crowned the same year of the 50th Year Celebration. Additionally, it is convenient for all students to participate in the Coronation.
Having the Coronation on the Campus Lawn is a first. My theme is “Greek Goddess”, therefore, having it outside goes hand and hand with the setting. I am utilizing the restored Centennial Plaza for the reception where the beautiful eternal flame continues to burn. The eternal flame is symbolic of my love for Miles College. I am “Honoring Miles College’s Past as We Prepare for Our Future”.
