LANSING, Mich. - The Aviation Technician Education Council (ATEC) has named JuliAnne Miller as the 2021 James Rardon Aviation Maintenance Technician Student of the Year. The award is the premier educational award in the aviation technology field. Miller was chosen from among nominations by 180 schools across the country.

Miller is the first Lansing student to receive the award. She was cited for academic achievement, involvement in activities that showcase leadership, and other contributions to the school and community.

“JuliAnne is one of our best students in the history of the program,” said Aviation Technology program director Mark Bathurst. “She has set a very high bar for other students. She is clearly deserving of this prestigious award.”

Miller holds a 3.99 GPA at LCC and has been on the President’s List every semester. She is also concurrently enrolled at Purdue University, where she is pursuing a bachelor’s degree from the Paralegal Program and holds a 3.61 GPA there.

Miller was honored at a virtual awards ceremony earlier this week.
