Miami University's First Tribal Students
In August, 1991, three Miami Tribe members became the first Miami Tribe students to enroll at Miami University. Two students, Scott Burkybile and Tina Holan, were first-year students. Rachel Hall (Eikenberry), was a graduate student who graduated in 1994. Scott, the first Myaamia undergraduate student to graduate from Miami University (in 1995), is the son of Sharon Burkybile, the first Miami Tribe liaison to Miami University.
Since then, many Myaamia students have chosen to receive their college education at the University bearing their Tribe's name. Over the years, the number of enrolled Myaamia students each semester has steadily grown and now commonly reaches 30 or more.
