Today Triton High School honors the accomplishments of senior Whytnie Miller. Whytnie is the daughter of Rhonda and Wayne Miller. Whytnie is still deciding on a major but she will attend Saint Mary's College this fall and be involved in the Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) program at Notre Dame. As a student-athlete, Whytnie played four seasons of basketball for the Lady Trojans, three seasons of Blue Thunder Softball with hopes of playing a fourth, and ran cross country her freshman year. While Whytnie doesn't plan to participate in athletics, she is looking forward to being active in several clubs while studying at Saint Mary's.

Who were your role models growing up? Who inspires you today? My mom and grandma really inspire me and have always been my role models.
What do you consider your biggest life accomplishment so far? I would consider my biggest life accomplishment so far getting over 2 knee surgeries. I never imagined that would be a goal of mine, but it has taught me how to deal with adversity.
What impressions do you hope you've made as a scholar, athlete, and/or member of the community? I hope to have made the impression of a good leader. I work really hard and I hope people see that with hard work anything is possible. I hope that I also showed people that they can talk to me about anything. I really do care about people and hope that shined through while I was in high school.
