April 4, 2011: Belhaven University graduate, Gloria Miller, was honored by the Lieutenant Governor of Mississippi for her commitment and contributions to the HEADWEA (Higher-Education Day - Working for Academic Success) program. The HEADWEA program was established by Mississippi State Legislator in 1987 as a way of honoring talented students and faculty of Mississippi higher education institutes. Its goal is to encourage excellence, increase knowledge, and promote good citizens prepared to meet future challenges.
