Congratulations to English and Comparative Literature and Music double-major Kennedy Miller, who was recently awarded the prestigious Marshall Scholarship!
The Marshall Scholarship funds graduate study in the United Kingdom for “intellectually distinguished” American students so that they may “act as ambassadors from the USA to the UK and vice versa throughout their lives.”
Miller, from Rocky Mount, NC, is prolific on campus: according to UNC News, she is the president of UNC Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, is an Honors Carolina scholar. On the extracuricular side, she is a member of UNC Opera, is the vice president and manager of Carolina Choir, and serves as a vocal and piano teacher for local children through Musical Empowerment.
Miller is UNC-Chapel Hill’s 22nd Marshall scholar.
Through her Marshall Scholarship, Miller hopes to study a Master’s Degree in music at the Royal Academy of Music in London. She also plans to engage in ongoing research on the intersection between feminism and opera.
