Meet Miss Miles College
I am Dorine Nicole James, your 2015-2016 Miss Miles College. I was born in the city of Canton, Ohio and raised in the small town of Centreville, Alabama. I am the daughter of Sarah James and the late Phillip James Sr. I graduated with honors from Bibb County High School, which afforded me the opportunity to begin my matriculation here at Miles College on a Presidential Scholarship. I am a senior majoring in elementary education and I am a member of various organizations across campus.
Miles College is “the home of southern beauty” and along with southern beauty comes southern hospitality. I will forever be grateful for the love and support that I have received here on this beautiful campus. Administrators, faculty, staff and students are always going the extra mile to bring a smile to someone’s face. At Miles College we do not focus only on what you have done, but also on what you can do. Miles College is a place of new beginnings, and I am honored to represent such an esteemed institution. I truly admire the vision that our illustrious president, President Dr. George T. French Jr. has for Miles College.
My experience here at “Dear Old Miles” has been quite unforgettable, and it has aided in molding me into the young woman that I am today. The hardest part of my college experience thus far would have to be when I lost my father to lung cancer during my sophomore year. He was my best friend. When I lost him, I also lost a part of myself. Despite what I have been through, I love to wear a smile and I love encouraging others to do the same. I believe that everyone is placed on this Earth to serve a special purpose. Along the journey of life obstacles are sometimes thrown at us. While some believe that those obstacles are there to hinder our success, I believe that they are there to make us stronger. As college students, we are sometimes encounter obstacles that may distract us from reaching our ultimate goal of obtaining a college degree. However, with the right attitude and with all the support available to us on campus, we can persevere and be successful.
The motto that I strive to live by is "Don’t Worry, Be Happy." I would like to motivate everyone to push through all trials and tribulations no matter how difficult they may be. God has a special purpose for everyone, and He will never put more on you than you can handle. Although there may be times when you want to give up you have to keep your head up, smile, and persevere. It will forever and always be a great day at Miles College!
