RCS senior named Colonial Council’s top scholar-athlete

Miller holding awardWith a 97.12 grade-point average while enrolled in all honors, Advanced Placement (AP) and University in the High School (UHS) courses, Nicole Miller is model student in the Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk senior class. Her hard work continued on to the basketball court, which earned her the honor of top scholar-athlete for the Colonial Council.

Miller is the first RCS player to represent the Council since 2006.

“I’m very proud of my accomplishment,” Miller said. “I can’t thank my family and teammates enough for supporting me and helping me to stay focused.”

Miller is also a member of the softball team and, until this year, played soccer as well. She has also been active in extracurricular activities, singing in the Harmonics (a select vocal ensemble), volunteering with Natural Helpers and serving as an officer for the National Honor Society. Outside of school, Miller also holds a part-time job.

“Balancing a sport, school and work is not easy, but I love doing what I do,” Miller said.

Looking to the future, Miller plans to study forensic pathology and biology in college with the goal of becoming a medical examiner.
