Community Spotlight: Sara Miller

by Tim Kowols

Without Sara Miller, you would not be enjoying the articles on our website as much as you might be right now.


Miller joined NEW Radio as a Kewaunee High School student as a part of the Ahnapee Youth Apprenticeship program. She contributed news articles virtually before transitioning to the office during the summer. She quickly picked up other tasks, including billing, traffic, and sales, in addition to news. Miller says she was nervous at first but quickly grew into the position that earned her respect from her peers at the office.

Miller says the biggest takeaway from her apprenticeship at NEW Radio were the basic life skills she learned, like time management and communication. She advises other students to take that first step and talk to their youth apprenticeship coordinator to see if an opportunity is right for them. Miller graduated from Kewaunee High School in May and will attend UW-Oshkosh this fall to study journalism.
