George Mason High School graduate Violet Miller has been chosen to join Teach for America’s 25th Anniversary Corps. A 2011 graduate of Mason and 2015 graduate of the University of Richmond, Miller will teach in Greater New Orleans- Louisiana Delta.
Miller will join a group of 50,000 leaders who have helped children gain equal educational opportunity in low income areas of the United States. She has committed to teach in the urban area of New Orleans with the most need.
In these areas, only 6 percent of students are likely to graduate college by 25 years of age. Miller will work alongside Teach for America members, as well as community members to raise that percentage in the Greater New Orleans area.
