Jennifer Miller is a proud mother of five children and a lifelong resident of Moore having graduated herself from Moore High School in 1994. All of the Miller children have either graduated or will graduate from Moore High School as well and carry on the tradition of Lion Pride.
Of the Miller children, Alexis is the oldest of the bunch, and currently works as an RN with Integris. Lofton is finishing his degree in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Oklahoma and recently welcomed a baby with his wife Miah Rae. Olivia is currently attending Rose State and is transferring to the University of Central Oklahoma next year to complete her degree in Education. Emma is currently a senior at Moore High School and just finished her high school volleyball career. She is continuing her volleyball passion by moving into a coaching role and will serve as a co-coach with her dad for the Kaizen 11 boys team. Bryson is the youngest and is currently a freshman at Moore High School. He is on the football team and is looking to pursue some school leadership opportunities over the next three years.
The Millers love Moore and Jennifer said that she couldn’t imagine raising her children anywhere else.
“Though our town has grown since I was a little girl, it still has a smaller town feel to me,” Miller said.
Over the years Miller has been very active in volunteer and fundraising activities throughout the Moore community and especially active with the volleyball booster club. Miller spoke about how she came into the role:
“A few of us moms started getting involved while our daughters were in junior high. I much preferred a back seat role,” Miller said. “When the opportunity presented itself to run for booster president, I was a bit hesitant since our previous president was a total rock star. HUGE shoes to fill! My husband assured me he’d help as much as he could and I decided to jump at the opportunity. It was honestly one of the best and most rewarding things I’ve ever been a part of.”
Although Miller hadn’t initially planned on taking such a large role in the booster club, she said she loved every moment of the experience. She has some advice for any other parents who are interested in volunteering as well but aren’t sure how to get involved.
“There are lots of ways to help. There is a lot of planning that goes into making a season successful. From working concessions, planning bondings, helping with fundraising, decorating for special events, and more than anything, just being available when a coach or player has a need,” Miller said. “Those needs could range from transporting cases upon cases of water or Gatorade from the concession closet and back (if you know you know) to simply sharing a hug when you know your player or coach needs one. These ladies have changed my life in ways I never imagined. I hope I have been able to be a small light in theirs as well. If you’re not involved, YOU ARE MISSING OUT!”
When the Millers have free time they love spending time together with their friends and loved ones. They like to have family game nights when they can let their competitive spirit take over. However, at the moment the Millers’ grandbaby is the main source of attention and affection.
