Miller is being inducted into NTHS based on her outstanding performance in Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration program at MTC. Her instructor, Brian Forbes, had this to say about her:
“From the moment Amoreena entered the classroom, she had an enthusiasm to learn everything she could about the subject of HVAC. She starts every day on time and with a positive, never-give-up attitude. She is a pleasure to be around and eager to help any student at any time.
