Taneka Milliner, a junior majoring in Special Education, is, ironically, from Oxford, Mississippi, while Anya Henry, a senior Finance major, is from Vicksburg, Mississippi.
Both of these very special young ladies explained how they wound up at Mississippi State University.
"I hate Ole Miss," said Taneka, jokingly. Actually, Taneka chose to attend MSU because, "in the third grade, my brother came to football camp here and I liked it and wanted to come to school here. Like my mom told me, even before I can remember, I always said I was a Bulldog."
Anya took a different route. Unlike Taneka, who lived in Oxford before attending MSU, Anya initially decided Ole Miss was the right place for her so she spent her first year of college there, majoring in Pre-Dental, before deciding MSU was the place she really wanted to be. Her reason for moving on was, "I am a big sports fan and I had a lot of friends who went here, so I decided to come here instead."
Obviously, with the season this soon-to-be 4th ranked Mississippi State basketball team is having, there is no doubt both of these young ladies are very happy with their decisions. I have a strong feeling, after eating one of the cookies they made, the basketball team is also very happy these two ladies chose MSU.
