Anitta Milloro

After becoming the first person in her family to graduate from high school, Anitta hadn’t planned to attend college.

She’s glad her youth minister forced her to fill out applications. She’s also glad—after being accepted at every school she applied to—she settled on North Central.

“The ministry and service opportunities far exceeded those at other schools,” says Anitta, who was initially attracted to North Central because of its Methodist affiliation. “The education I’ve received here has surpassed anything I could’ve hoped for. Not only have I been prepared academically, but I've also had the opportunity to network with individuals in my field. How many college students can say they’ve eaten with their church Bishop or served on a church-related conference board?”

Anitta has been accepted into the master of divinity program at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary and plans to become an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church. She currently serves as a children’s pastor at a United Methodist church nearby.

“I’m confident that I’ve developed into an informed, involved, principled and productive leader,” she says.
