Miller was recognized for her work in the community and at the state, regional, and national TRIO levels as well as her significant contributions in her everyday duties at the college. TRIO programs are federally-funded initiatives designed to identify promising students, prepare them to do college work, provide information on academic and financial aid opportunities, and supply tutoring and support services in an effort to enhance high school completion, college retention, and graduation.

“Cheryl has six years of service as a TRIO professional at the Owens Campus,” said Bonnie Hall, special programs director. “She was instrumental in developing a professional online survey which resulted in the development of statewide drive-in conferences, and she demonstrates a high level of commitment to assisting her TRIO team in reaching their goals of effectiveness and accountability. Cheryl is a pleasure to work with due to her professionalism, intelligence, and compassion for others.”
