In the final weeks leading up to Graduation Day 2022, EAB will celebrate each of its Seniors via the Senior Spotlight. The High School Faculty is committed to making sure each member of the Class of 2022 knows how much they have meant to this school and how proud we are of them. Today, the Senior in the spotlight is Amanda K. Miyano. Amanda has been a proud member of the EAB Community since arriving on campus in K3.
While Amanda's favorite EAB memory dates back to nap time in K3, we will remember her most recently as someone wholly dedicated to service. Amanda has taken on a role leading the way with so many service groups and projects. She started and led the NHS Uniform Drive; led the expansion of environmental cleanups EAB has initiated around Brasilia at EAB. She has also championed so many other initiatives, including the recent BCS Cabelegria, a drive to collect hair donations to make wigs for those affected by cancer. At this point, it would be difficult to imagine the service program at EAB without Amanda's involvement. As one faculty member writes, "Amanda is a phenomenal young woman who has paved the road for many students regarding service at school. She is driven, passionate and genuinely desires to make a difference in others' lives. She will be missed!" Another writes, "Litter picker of the year! Amazing Amanda- always!"
Rightfully, Amanda is most proud of her involvement and leadership of so many service projects, but also making it through the IB program, especially the development and display of her IB Art Exhibition. It was truly amazing to see the culmination of two years of work around a theme while using and working with different artistic techniques. Teachers have especially noted her determination and hard work, which have led to the most organized notes and great project presentations. They will also remember her character, as a nice person who always sought to make things better. Ms Corcoran will recall her maturity and the depth of her thinking.
Amanda's dedication and ability to lead projects will serve her well as she prepares to study business. She will miss all of the extracurricular opportunities EAB offers as well as the small community. She would like to thank her family, teachers, and friends.
