Tally Miller, BSN 4, was awarded the Jason Ray Memorial Spirit Award at the Ray of Hope banquet on April 29, 2012. Miller is the Community Outreach Chair for the Association of Student Nurses and a Carolina Cheerleader.
The Jason Ray Memorial Spirit Award is given to a member of the Spirit Program in honor of former mascot Jason Ray, who died while traveling with the men’s basketball team at the NCAA tournament in 2007. The award keeps Ray’s memory alive by honoring one student who demonstrates excellence in academics, community service, and representing the University of North Carolina.
Miller plans to incorporate the Ray of Hope Foundation into her position as ANS Community Outreach Chair.
