Miller served his country during Desert
Storm and feels that his experience in the
military has taught him how to work with

students and the faculty. Miller also wants to
work hand in hand with the students and see a
joining of the body, mind, and soul.
An illustration of this is Gardner-Webb

the mind seeking to share knowledge, and the
