Miranda McNeil of Park City named MSUB Outstanding Undergraduate

Miranda McNeil

One of the first students to greet new members to the MSUB family was Miranda McNeil. For three years, this exceptional student, as a Summer Orientation Leader for three summers welcomed new Yellowjackets along their journey and helped familiarize them to campus.
You couldn’t ask for a better representative of MSUB than McNeil. She is graduating from the College of Education with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics with a teaching option while upholding a 3.97 GPA.
McNeil has been able to complete 21 of her 181.5 credits as honors credits.
Her nominator said, “Among Miranda’s many campus activities, her work as Orientation Leader stands out for me in that I have seen the excellence of her work firsthand. In the groups that she leads, all eyes are upon her; her entering students are energized and engaged. It is work that comes with costs, for example, the all-nighters she has spent with students suffering from homesickness or with students who sensed the skills of her listening ear.”
McNeil, from Park City, Montana, cherished her time as an SOL.
“Throughout the years I have been able to reconnect with students and be a resource for them whenever needed. The connections and relationships I made were unforgettable,” she said.
Invariably, McNeil set a great academic example, as her own performance standards are the best.
“Miranda McNeil is nowhere near reaching her potential and will undoubtedly become a distinguished alumna in the future,” her nominator said.
While McNeil enjoyed her time on campus, she also gleaned a lot from the opportunities presented while working in surrounding schools. Over the course of her education at MSUB, she was able to work in seventh and eighth grade math, kindergarten, and fourth and fifth grade classrooms.
This hands-on experience allowed her to work directly with administrators, teachers, parents and students in settings that directly reflect her future profession.
She has also been involved with Yellowjacket tutoring, Math Club, Jacket Student Ambassadors, Student Activities Board and was a service project coordinator for the Office of Community Involvement.
Outside of the university, McNeil remained an active part of the community. She served as a substitute teacher, is the nursery coordinator at King of Glory Lutheran Church, and is a referee for Montana School Association (basketball and volleyball).
“I am grateful to have been part of a prestigious, welcoming community and am proud to be graduating as a Yellowjacket!”
