Stelos Superstar: Ami Mizell-Flint

Ami 2

Ami Mizell-Flint is a “non-traditional” student, with a go-getter attitude. She started college back in the fall of 1990 and didn’t know what she wanted to be when she grew up. She says she had no idea what made her come alive. Ami earned two associate degrees and a one-year certificate, and then she got married and focused on her family. When her daughter was born in 1996, she always joked that she wanted to go back and finish her college degree before her daughter graduated from high school. So, when her daughter was a freshman in high school, she realized that she had four years left. Ami went back to school and graduated Angelo State University with her BBA on May 10th of this year, three weeks before her oldest daughter graduated from high school!

Not only did Ami graduate, she was also awarded a spring 2014 Housley Principled Leadership Scholarship. Ami was an asset to our classroom and after going through the experience, she says she learned valuable information she wishes she got back when she was a “traditional” student.

“Throughout the semester, I couldn’t help but think how lucky the students were to be learning this information as young adults. It took me twenty years of working in the business world to acquire much of that information the hard way! The new lessons I learned in Housley are things I know will be useful in both my professional and personal life. I think the program should be required for every college student!”

Ami comes alive when volunteering for organizations that benefit children. Ami is active in her community as a Girl Scout leader and canoe trainer, Vice President/Lay Leader of the Jewish community, member of the Peace Ambassadors of West Texas, board member for a local theatre company, and a San Angelo ISD school board trustee.

It was truly an honor having Ami go through Housley – we wish her and her family all of the joy in the world.
