In addition to her academic and community involvement, Michiah is a member of the Armstrong Wildcat Track Team, where she can often be found diligently working to improve her performances both on and off the track. Michiah joined the Wildcat Family as a freshman; and for three years she demonstrated her athletic abilities on the Wildcat Volleyball, Basketball and Track teams.
