Published 1:04 pm Wednesday, June 5, 2019

The Charlotte County APVA (Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities) was formed 91 years ago to preserve the rich history and heritage of Charlotte County. A scholarship was created in 2004 by the board of directors to continue and maintain its pledge of preserving the county’s past for future generations by financing a scholarship for a Charlotte County high school senior or a county resident who is currently enrolled in college, and has at least a 3.0 grade-point average.

For 2019, the Charlotte County APVA Scholarship was awarded Michaela Gayle Emilie Miller, daughter of Albert Miller and Samantha Dunn-Miller of Keysville. After graduating from Randolph-Henry High School, Michaela will attend Longwood University in the fall and plans to pursue a degree in elementary education and ultimately a master’s degree. She is a member of Eureka Baptist Church, where she enjoys attending, assisting with Vacation Bible School, cleanup days, and participating in other special church functions and events. Additionally, she is quite physically active and enjoys volleyball and running. Currently, she is an employee of Mimmo’s Italian Restaurant in Charlotte Court House and babysits for local area families. Outside of work she enjoys going on vacation to the beach. Michael’s mother, Samantha is a native of Charlotte County and her father, Albert migrated to the area for college. Her love for history and Charlotte County stems from her solid upbringing. In the future, Michaela wishes to remain in Charlotte County and teaching.

The Charlotte County Branch AVPA was pleased to award this year’s scholarship to help a promising young future who will forever have deep roots in historic Charlotte County.
