When Brian Miller started at IPFW, fresh out of Carroll High School, he knew he wanted to work in sports. He served as the public address announcer for Mastodon basketball and volleyball events and devoted so much time to extracurricular activities that he neglected his studies. “I struggled my first year and was put on academic probation,” he recalls of his early college days, which also included serving on The Communicator staff and in student government.
