Brandon Miller, Class of 2011

millerWhy did you choose history?

As a youth, my interest in history was very strong.  I was very much a storyteller at heart.

What are you doing now?

Following graduation I found employment at the Constitutional Walking Tour Company in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With this company, I gave guided walking tours of the city’s historic districts.  Now I am work as the Assistant Director of Education at the Brandywine Battlefield Park Associates, a nonprofit dedicated to the operation and general upkeep of a former Pennsylvania State Park.  My many responsibilities include booking educational groups, media and social media marketing, and the development of “living history” events.

What is your best memory of history at Valpo?

I recall being allowed into the archive at the Christopher Center, where our historiography class was able to handle documents and books that date all the way back to the Reformation. Quite an exciting day!
