Haylee MillerDate: May 7, 2013


The Springfield News-Leader media group named College of the Ozarks nursing student Haylee Miller “Honorable Mention for Nursing Student of the Year” from four finalists. The Missouri State Board of Nursing reviewed the nominations from southwest Missouri before selecting the finalists.

The “Nursing Student of the Year” and selections for honorable mention were announced at the Southwest Missouri Salute to Nurses Luncheon on April 23.

Presently, Miller attends the College of the Ozarks Armstrong McDonald School of Nursing and will graduate May 2014 with Bachelor of Science in Nursing. After graduation, she aspires to work in an area hospital in order to gain general experience as an RN.

“Haylee is a wonderful representation of the quality of students in the Armstrong McDonald School of Nursing. Her passion for excellence in serving her patients and peers as an extension of Christ is most honorable,” said Dr. Janice Williams, Nursing Program Director.

This is the fifth year for the Salute to Nurses event and the fifth year that a College of the Ozarks nursing student has been named a finalist. In 2009 and 2010, a C of O student was named nursing student of the year. Miller received a $500 cash scholarship for placing honorable mention.
