Miles was a 2005 graduate of Tift County High School. He earned an Associate's Degree from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, GA and a Bachelor's Degree from Northwestern University in Chicago, IL. During his time at TCHS, Miles sang in chorus, served on the yearbook staff, and served on SGA. At ABAC, Miles was an ABAC Ambassador, the Stallion Newspaper Editor, and he was elected as Mr. ABAC during the annual pageant. He made a far reaching impact at Northwestern University by serving on the Homecoming Committee and working for the Northwestern Campus Activities department with Organizations and Activities.
He had a heart for young people and a passion for excellence. Miles showed this to the world by his devotion to the Tift County 4-H Program. Miles was currently employed as the AmeriCorps Community Service Specialist with UGA Extension in Tift County. He has held many roles in the Tift County Extension office over the years, including Program Assistant as well as the Director of the Strong African American Families program. His love for 4-H was undeniable and contagious. He dedicated his life to improving the lives of the 4-Hers that came through the doors of the Extension office. Miles trained hundreds of elementary, middle, and high school students in valuable life lessons in community service, public speaking, citizenship, and leadership. His impact will live on for generations to come.
Miles currently served on the ABAC Alumni Association Board of Directors, the Wiregrass Farmer's Market Board of Directors, and the Diversified Enterprises Advisory Board. In the past, he held leadership positions in the Tift County Relay for Life committee, the Fiesta del Pueblo planning committee, and countless more community outreach events. He was a CASA and tirelessly advocated for the best interest of Tift County's children. He was recognized as one of Tifton's "Top 10 under 40" for his service to our community. The legacy he leaves behind is unmatched.
