Lexus Miller, an incoming senior at Paul Laurence Dunbar High School, has been honored by Berea College as a Carter G. Woodson Enduring Legacy award winner.

Carl Thomas, associate director of admissions and coordinator of minority services at Berea, said the award is named in honor of Woodson "as a means of recognizing African-American high school juniors who have demonstrated outstanding character, academic achievement and leadership as exemplified in the life of Dr. Woodson and the legacy of Berea College, the first integrated, co-education college in the South."

Lexus, who plays alto saxophone for the Dunbar Marching Band and is a member of the Wind Ensemble Honors Band, recently was selected as a Kentucky Ambassador of Music to Europe. She will travel with a group of honor band, orchestra and choir students on a 16-day tour of seven countries in summer 2012. Lexus is the daughter of Reneé Miller.
