Penn State Behrend’s class of 2018 is ready to make its mark on the world! We’re proud of our students and the things they’ve accomplished and learned while here at Behrend. Over the next couple months, we’ll be introducing you to a few of our remarkable seniors who have overcome challenges, pioneered new technology, participated in important research projects, and left an impression at Penn State Behrend.
Today, we’d like you to meet Kelly Miller:
Major: Mechanical Engineering
Hometown: Louisville, Ohio
On choosing Penn State Behrend: I like the size of Behrend and the fact that no matter where you go on campus, you can always find someone you know.
Proudest accomplishment at Behrend: I danced in THON 2017 and it was so empowering to see the impact so many Penn State students have on the life of a child and their family! Standing for forty-six hours was the best weekend of my life.
Campus involvement: I’m a member of Gamma Sigma Sigma service sorority, Behrend Benefiting THON, the women’s tennis team, and The Outreach Program for Soccer (TOPS). I’ve also participated in undergraduate research and Alternative Spring Break.
From Pennsylvania to Hawaii: My junior year, I was able to present research at the Electrochemical Society conference in Honolulu, Hawaii, with Dr. Adam Hollinger, assistant professor of mechanical engineering.
Following her graduation in May, Kelly has accepted a position as an associate product engineer at Newell Brands in North Carolina.
