Prep Grad Heads to Africa with Peace Corps

Posted May 24th, 2013


On May 30, Sean Miller (Class of 2008) will begin a 27-month volunteer service tour of duty with the Peace Corps in Africa.  Sean will participate in a 10-week training program in Mozambique before receiving a permanent assignment.  He will be involved in providing programs dealing with awareness, education, and prevention regarding HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other health infections that are pandemic throughout sub-Saharan Africa.

After his graduation from the Prep, Sean attended Villanova University where he majored in Political Science with a concentration in African Studies.  As part of his program, he studied in Rwanda during the summer of 2010, and in Botswana during the spring semester 2011.  In addition, Sean participated in university-sponsored service projects in the Dominican Republic and Cambodia. He was also a kicker on Villanova’s 2009 NCAA Division I FCS National Championship team.  Sean graduated from Villanova in 2012, and for the past year he has served as a substitute teacher at the Prep and in the Egg Harbor School District.

The Peace Corps is an agency of the United States government whose mission is to promote world peace and friendship through service to others.  The agency has a fifty-year history of promoting global good will and currently sponsors projects in 70 countries.

Sean is a true example of the Prep’s desire for its graduates to make the world a better place.  He begins his service with the best wishes and prayers of the Prep community.
