A senior sociology major at Shreveport's Centenary College has been awarded a Clarence J. Jupiter Fellowship in Institutional Advancement by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE).  

Ninjia Miles is one of twelve students, nationwide, to receive one of these fellowships.

Each Jupiter fellow receives hands-on advancement training to gain experience in one of three areas -- in her case, philanthropy.  Jupiter fellows are also entitled to a paid internship, CASE membership, and mentoring from a CASE professional member.  As part of her fellowship, Miles will receive job training and gain valuable experience in the advancement disciplines of alumni relations, communications, and fundraising.  She will also represent Centenary College at the CASE ASAP Network Convention in St. Louis next month.

This is the second year in a row that Centenary has had a student selected for this prestigious fellowship opportunity.
