Look familiar to you? Amanda Miller once greeted families by the thousands as a celebrity at DisneyWorld. Picture her with contacts instead of glasses, perfect blonde updo, elbow-length gloves, a huge ballgown, and glass slippers and you might get an idea of the job Amanda held in between high school graduation and the start of her college career.
Ask Amanda and she’ll tell you it was an adventure of a lifetime to work for a year at DisneyWorld and to be every little girl’s (and every teenage guy’s) dream. But the desire to move on with life led Amanda to several colleges and career interests before finding McMurry and the Biomedical Science program. Yes, Amanda is still waiting for her prince to come, but she’s not wasting her time doing so! The guys in BIMS are awfully glad she’s made that choice!
Amanda transferred to McMurry for the Fall 2008 semester, bringing hours from at least two other colleges. Her wanderlust satisfied, she decided to return to home and family to complete her college education. Now she is “home” in a major that excites her every bit as much as the glamour of being a featured Disney character. She spends lots of time in the molecular lab, helping Dr. D, building skills that will serve her well as she pursues new dreams – working in the biotech industry and one day teaching molecular biology herself.
