Holmes Community College mathematics instructor Lisa Anglin and Trek coordinator Bethany Miller were both honored with the regional Phi Theta Kappa Horizon Advisor Award. This is an honor bestowed on Phi Theta Kappa chapter advisers in recognition of exemplary service and dedication to the mission of the organization.

Anglin is an advisor for the Alpha Lambda Sigma Chapter located on the Ridgeland Campus, and Miller advises the Alpha Mu Beta Chapter in Grenada.

Anglin, who has worked at Holmes for 13 years, holds a bachelor's in mathematics from Millsaps College and a master's in mathematics Mississippi College. In addition to teaching mathematics courses at Holmes, she is also a member of the Educational Association and serves as an adviser for the Alpha Lambda Sigma Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa.

Outside of Holmes, Anglin is a member of the Mississippi Collegiate Mathematics Association and on the Board for Salt and Light Ministry. She is also a member of Madison United Methodist Church where she serves on the Children's Ministry Leadership Team. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family, volunteering, cooking, working out, reading and traveling. She and her husband, Micah, have two children: Macy and Luke.

"From the moment Mrs. Anglin began her role as one of the very valued advisors with the Alpha Lambda Sigma Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, it was apparent that she was going to embrace the challenge and be exactly what the chapter needed," said Academic Dean Dr. Tonya Lawrence. "With each responsibility she is given, Lisa has high expectations of herself; therefore, she has high expectations of and for the chapter and their accomplishments. Her willingness and ability to 'learn the ropes' of her new role while providing skillful guidance to the officers and members of the chapter were ideal."

Miller, a Holmes alumna, began her studies at the college in the summer of 2011. She was active on campus as an Ambassador, work-study in the vice president and academic dean's office and as a member of Phi Theta Kappa. In May 2013, she graduated and was named the valedictorian.

Miller officially became employed at Holmes in 2015 as financial aid advisor on the Grenada Campus. She continued her education, and earned her bachelor's degree from The University of Mississippi in May 2017 as Class Marshal. She moved positions at Holmes, taking over as administrative assistant to the vice president and academic dean of the Grenada Campus in January 2017. She transitioned again in October, moving into her current position as Trek coordinator for the Grenada and Goodman campuses.

Miller has served as an advisor for the Grenada Campus Phi Theta Kappa chapter since June of 2017. Shortly after taking on that role, she was recognized with the Exceptional Customer Service Award at the 2017 Opening Convocation.

Miller's husband, Trae, serves as the youth pastor at their church, The Pentecostals of Grenada. Miller is a very active member of the church, where she sings on the praise team. The Millers also have one daughter, London Rose.

"I don't know of anyone more qualified to be the recipient of the PTK Horizon Advisor Award than Bethany Miller," said Grenada Campus Academic Dean Dr. Myra Harville. "While a student at Holmes, Bethany was an active member of the Alpha Mu Beta chapter and knew how much work would be required as an advisor. Bethany's sunny disposition and 'can do' attitude are so necessary to be successful in the PTK arena. She never minds going out of her way to help students with any need and always wants to see them accomplish their goals. I guess I can just sum it up to say the world needs more Bethany Aldridge Miller's in it!"

Anglin and Miller will be recognized during Catalyst, Phi Theta Kappa's annual convention in Orlando, Florida, April 4-6.
