Meet Programming Committee Member, Savannah Miller!
Savannah is a senior from Hazard, Kentucky, and is majoring in Human Health Sciences major with two minors in Art Studio and Gender and Women’s Studies.
I knew I wanted to be part of DanceBlue before I even became a student in the UK. As I watched everyone share their own DanceBlue experiences, I was convinced that there was something magical about it. They were right. I felt that magic for the first time when I participated in the marathon in 2020 with my sorority. I danced, I laughed, I cried for 24 hours and I realized why. We all have a “why,” or a purpose behind what we do. In this case, why I DanceBlue. I DanceBlue for the kids who visit the DanceBlue clinic and the kids in other clinics facing the same battle and I DanceBlue for my friends and family who have pushed me and stayed passionate by my side. To me, DanceBlue is not just one day out of the whole year, but a way for us to continuously give back to the kids and their families year round.
This year, I’m looking forward to another amazing marathon in 2022 on Programming Committee. We’ve already started working towards the big day, even over the summer. On Programming Committee, we plan the themed hours of the marathon and activities that come along with it. I hope to enrich the experience of DanceBlue for dancers, attendees, and volunteers through my work on Programming Committee. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to be more involved with DanceBlue this year. I can’t wait to spend my senior year giving my all FTK and preparing for DanceBlue 2022 alongside the amazing people who make this organization great!
Outside of DanceBlue, I am involved with my sorority, Delta Gamma, serving a second term on my chapter’s Honor Board. I also have a multitude of roles within the Fraternity and Sorority Life community: on Panhellenic Council I serve as Vice President of Member Education, Vice Chair of the Judicial Board, and Head Chapter Assistant for recruitment as well as Chapter President of Order of Omega Honor Society. I am also a member of the Student Transportation Council, serving as the Representative for Greek Life, and the Event Coordinator for the Pre-Pharmacy Club. When I’m not wearing one of those hats, I work as a pharmacy technician at Walgreens in Paris, Kentucky! I hope to attend pharmacy school once I graduate from UK next spring.
