BATH TOWNSHIP — Ainsley Miller, a 17-year-old senior at Bath High School, is carving out a pathway for a career in mechanical engineering, and she doesn’t have too far to go to earn a degree.
Miller has chosen to attend Ohio Northern University in Ada.
“I can commute from my house,” said Miller. “I only live 15 minutes away, and it’s one of the best schools for engineering in Ohio.”
Her decision was also influenced by family.
“A lot of people in my family, mostly all my uncles and my brothers, brother in law, they do mechanical engineering and all sorts of engineering. So it’s kind of why, and I feel like it’s something that’s always going to be useful,” Miller said.
Miller has been active in her four years at Bath High School.
“I’m an editor of our Paw Print newscast, treasurer in student council and I’m also secretary in National Honor Society and I just finished playing soccer all four years and I also have letters in swim and track,” Miller said.
Her participation in sports has taught her the leadership skills she’ll need later in life.
“(It teaches) how to interact with people that you might not interact with outside of sports or someone you might not always get along with. Being on a team, you create relationships that you wouldn’t if you didn’t play that sport,” Miller said.
Miller’s attended Bath schools her entire life, as have her siblings.
“(There’s) a lot of connections and sports are always fun and there’s just a lot of good people here,” Miller said.
