Cindy Miller joined the Middle East University staff in late October. She is serving as the assistant director of the cafeteria as well as the student work program coordinator.
Before moving to Lebanon, Cindy lived in Lincoln, Nebraska in the United States where she was working in a Lincoln Public Schools system cafeteria. Prior to that she ran her own business selling merchandise of Nebraska’s college American football team, the Cornhuskers, for 16 years. It is a common joke in Nebraska that on days when there are games, the Memorial Stadium becomes the third largest city in Nebraska due to the amount of people.
When she first found out about the job, she knew that if God wanted her here he would make a way. A week later, she received a postcard in the mail from the local postal service. On the front it said, “If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?”
When she told some friends she was moving, they thought the Middle East was the Middle East part of the United States. She assured them, “This is the Middle East Lebanon, not the Middle East Iowa.”
Cindy is excited to be here in Lebanon. It is her first time out of the United States. She is looking forward to all the new experiences and to see what God has in store for her.
“My whole life has been preparing for this,” Cindy commented during an interview. “God has made me strong through life experiences.”
Cindy’s hobbies include spending time with her grandchildren, cooking, canning, and gardening. She particularly enjoys gardening flowers.
