Student of the Month: Destiny Miller

November’s Student of the Month is a remarkably caring and dedicated person. This student has a quiet grace and maturity that is both appreciated and admired. She is a creative and talented writer, willing to put in the hard work needed to ensure that she not only does well in a class, but also really understands the content and material. In each piece of writing, whether fiction or nonfiction, objective or deeply personal, she pours herself into her work and strives to create something meaningful.

She has a serious, inquiring mind; she doesn’t settle for easy answers, but rather, probes below the surface for insight and understanding.  She is also especially honest and kind. She interacts consistently with everyone, regardless of who they are. She is quick to laugh, and she doesn’t feel like she has to do what other people are doing—she is her own person. We are proud to recognize Destiny Miller as the November 2019 Student of the Month. Congratulations, Destiny.
