44: My Name is Emily Miller and I loved being the Historian in Otterbein's chapter of ALD/PES this past year. This organization has allowed other members and myself so many new opportunities; from getting to meet new people to getting to help the Westerville community. Most notably being an officer has allowed me to break out of my shell and I'm immensely grateful for that. I hope you enjoyed looking through Otterbein's year as much as I enjoyed participating in it!
