Aurelia Miller Presented with HPU’s 2018 Haverty Cup
Aurelia Miller, a graduating senior at High Point University, has been honored as the 2018 recipient of the Haverty Cup.

The Haverty Cup was established in 1988 by the late Rawson Haverty to honor annually an outstanding graduating senior in home furnishings-related programs at HPU. This tribute was created to encourage students to pursue a career in the home furnishings industry.

Miller, who is from Denton, was presented the award on campus today by Havertys’ Steve Burdette, executive vice president, operations, and Scott Miles, vice president stores and western regional manager. Miller received a $2,500 award and a personal replica of the Haverty Cup. Her name will be engraved on the base of the Haverty Cup, which is on permanent display in the library of Norton Hall on the HPU campus.

Miller has proven herself to be an outstanding student by earning a 3.65 GPA with a major in visual merchandising and design, while also working an average of 30 hours per week at Lowes Foods. Her work ethic is shown by being honored as employee of the week at the supermarket and rotating jobs, from managing the front end to using her creativity to produce signs, tags and displays for the store. Her dedication to her major has been shown through class projects and designing and implementing displays at the Showtime Market, a textile tradeshow, in High Point.
