Her major is Elementary Education, but East Carolina University Senior Erica Miller can teach people of any age about making a difference in their community.

Miller received the the second annual North Carolina Campus Compact Community Impact Student Award. This award recognizes students who have made significant, innovative contributions to campus-based efforts to address community needs.

Miller has a long list of activities that qualified her for this award. She
took part in the NC-ACTS! AmeriCorps program last year. This year, Miller is an AmeriCorps member with Project Heart. During her sophomore year at ECU, Miller planned the first Literacy Day for kindergarten students at Wahl-Coates Elementary School. She has helped the project grow every year, by adding more students.
