Senior and Mini-THON Overall Emma Miller before a meeting

With 37 days until Mini-THON, and the THON committees are working hard to make sure the night is a success. CV is going back to the 12-hour celebration, so the committees and overalls have a lot to organize on top of the many events held throughout the year to raise money for cancer research treatment.

Senior Emma Miller is one of three overalls for Mini-THON along with Kaleb Desso and Jess Hutcheson. The overalls are students carefully chosen the year prior through interviews and essays to lead and organize everything related to THON events and fundraising, and they begin work as soon as their chosen. Each Overall monitors four committees; Emma monitors and leads Family Relations, Facilities, Communications, and Design.

“My favorite part is having my peers look up to me in a way I never thought was possible,” Miller said.

As an overall, they also run meetings, assign jobes/roles, and are the main source of communication between the committees, staff, and people in the community. Other than the big night, Emma and her peers are preparing for the next event, Man Pageant, being held February 23rd.

“I’m really looking forward to Man Pageant, because when interviewing the boys they had some pretty cool talent ideas,” Miller said.

Miller joined this organization because she is passionate about finding a cure for cancer and supporting families in need.

“I got a chance to see the research labs at the hospital, and any information that they find out will go worldwide, so we have the chance to cure childhood cancer,” Miller said. “And if we can find a cure for that, I feel like we can find a cure for all types of cancers as well.”
