Distinguished Finalist

Caitlyn Miler

Cincinnati, Ohio

Caitlyn Miler, 14, of Cincinnati, Ohio, a freshman at Ohio Connections Academy, volunteers as a teacher’s assistant with the MYCincinnati youth orchestra, working closely with young musicians in a program aimed at providing opportunities to grow and evolve through music. After her own rehearsal schedule with the program was scaled back, Caitlyn wanted to use her extra time to help younger students; she created her own assistant position, providing much-needed volunteer support for the program as enrollment increased.
