Markie Miller Is Chosen as CMN Student of the Year


Markie Miller, CMN Student of the Year

Gresham resident Markie Miller has been chosen as the College of Menominee Nation’s Student of the Year. Miller is a candidate for graduation in May 2021 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood/Middle Childhood Education.


She has made CMN’s Academic Deans List for two semesters and has participated in the Keshena 4-H events, CMN College Night, and STEM seminars. Her community service includes Menominee Night out Against Crime, Menominee Haunted Hallway Event, and Bringing Communities Together Through Traditional Games.


An enrolled member of the Menominee Indian Tribe, Miller is a mother of two and faced challenges of moving into an online environment for learning over the past year. She used the skills taught in her education classes to help set up a classroom at home for her children. Miller's future goal after earning her Bachelor’s degree is to obtain a Master’s degree in Special Education.


Miller says her studies will help her to “guide and educate young Native Americans to reach their goals through a positive and understanding atmosphere.” Her future teaching plans keep Miller close to her roots with the hope of teaching within the Menominee Indian School District.


CMN’s Student of the Year will join those from among the 36 other accredited tribal colleges and universities honored annually through AIHEC.


The College of Menominee Nation is a Higher Learning Commission accredited baccalaureate-level institution now entering its 28th year and serving students from campuses in Keshena and Green Bay. Enrollment at the tribal College is open to all.
