CCS’ Miller honored upon her retirement

Terrace Miller has spent the last 30 years serving the children of Clinton City Schools, but will spend her last day with the school system June 30 as she enters retirement.

The administration hosted a reception in her honor Wednesday afternoon at the central office. Family, friends and co-workers were in attendance to offer well wishes for the future.

Miller, who is the assistant superintendent for human resources, began working in the central office as the health coordinator before becoming an assistant principal at the middle school. She later served as principal before returning to the central office.

Before becoming the assistant superintendent for human resources, Miller was the assistant superintendent over student services and federal program. In that position she was responsible for Title 1, English as a Second Language studies, communicating with transportation officials, guidance counselors and the public. She took over in the human resources capacity when Nancy Dillman retired in December 2015.

A product of Clinton City Schools, Miller returned to her hometown for her professional career after attending East Carolina University and earning a degree in school and community health. She later earned a master’s degree in administration and supervision from Fayetteville State University.

As the human resource leader, Miller has worked with principals as they look to hire new employees as well as handle other recruitment duties.

Outside of her duties with the school system, Miller is active with the NAACP and the Juvenile Crime Prevention Program of Sampson County, along with other professional organizations.
