It was 50 degrees below zero, when Sabatino Miller moved to Warner Robins, Georgia, from Anchorage, Alaska. Although he was just in the seventh grade when he moved, he holds vivid memories of his former home state.
“I liked the scenery,” he said. “Every day we’d wake up, step outside our front door and see the mountains right there.”
The northern lights were especially memorable to Miller, who describes them as “magical.”
“Everything just seemed like it was almost a Disney movie up there,” he said. “The northern lights were amazing, and we were surrounded by nature. It was common to see moose in our yard.”
Miller and his sister plan to go back to visit friends and family.
Since he’s made Georgia his home, he’s had friends and relatives attend Georgia College.
“One of my teachers really pushed me to go to Georgia College,” Miller said of Louis John Leskosky, II, ’08, who earned a Master of Arts in teaching, with a concentration in secondary history from Georgia College. “Initially, I was leaning more towards joining the Air Force, but after speaking with Mr. Leskosky, he got me to apply here.”
Although Miller’s major is undeclared, he is leaning towards business. During a career exploration his senior year in high school, he discovered he was well-suited to become a management consultant.
“All of my classes seem fairly diverse so I think that will help me focus on a major,” Miller said. “I also want to try to check out clubs or other organizations. I really want to use these opportunities to see the different possibilities. I’m hoping that by joining clubs and diversifying my classes, I will figure out where I want to take my path.”
