Meet
Ms.Miller

Welcome back LVA students and families!

Hello! My name is Ms.Stacy Miller, and I would like to invite you to the Student Success Center, LVA’s newest student support service! After 23 years as an English teacher here at LVA, I am excited to transition into my new role as your College & Career Coordinator, where I can offer my expertise in college essay writing and revision, application processes, and resume building, among many other topics.

 

While your time in high school will help you to prepare for life post-graduation, I am here to help you discover and design your pathway to that life through planning for college, career exploration (ex: military service), or technical training so that you can reach your goals and find happiness and success.

 

I can help you explore your career interests, identify your personal strengths and connect you to resources to enhance college acceptance results. Additionally, if you are interested in internship opportunities, on-campus summer fellowships, or joining the workforce during or post-high school, I can guide you so that you can experience positive employability outcomes.

 

Please stop by the Student Success Center to visit with Ms. Miller and routinely revisit our webpage to take advantage of the many guidance opportunities.

 

You can also make an appointment with me by emailing my secretary at grahaaj@nv.ccsd.net or by calling the office at 702-799-7800 Ext: 4310.  

 

I look forward to an incredible year of exploration and growth as we work together to ensure your high school experience prepares you for post-secondary opportunities!!

 

Ms. Miller

Scholarship Information

Scholarships are gifts. They don't need to be repaid. There are thousands of them, offered by schools, employers, individuals, private companies, nonprofits, communities, religious groups, and professional and social organizations. A scholarship is an award of financial aid for a student to further their education. Scholarships are awarded on various criteria usually reflecting the values and purposes of the donor or founder of the award. Please visit your counselor or stop by the Student Success Center if you have any questions regarding scholarships. Also, please revisit the Student Success Center webpage for available scholarships throughout the year.
