Living Legend

Often people attempt to live their lives backwards:  they want more things, more education, more money, more order in an attempt to do more of what makes them happy.  The way it actually works is the reverse.  This is the lesson LaRue Miller taught learners daily in her classroom.

Our school namesake reflects:  “You must first be who you really are and then do what you need to do in order to have what you need and want in life.”  It is interesting to note how Mrs. Miller’s philosophy rings true in the generations of lives she has touched through her teaching legacy in Midlothian ISD.  While she would never admit it, she remains a critical part of something profoundly extraordinary because she was the catalyst.

Mrs. Miller will also tell you she is humbled and honored to have her legacy carried forth in the school bearing her name.  We strive everyday to make decisions and choices with her in mind.  When you visit our campus, you will find telltale signs of her blessing:  a picture or book here, a quote there–all little reminders of her majestic influence and inspiration.  She deeply loves our learning community, prays for us, and devotes great time and energy into cheerleading our work.  I am personally grateful for her wisdom, enthusiasm, and hugs; she is so generous with those hugs!  She knows her story, she communicates her story, and she continues to lead with her story everyday!

Thanks, Mrs. Miller, for honoring us with your legacy; thanks for being our personal living legend in MISD.  After all:  “The goal is simple . . . to help you achieve yours!”
