Mira Marquel Hamilton '91 inducted into the
University of Whitewater Athletic Hall of Fame
October 20, 2012
L to R:
Mira was one of many fine students at Washington HS and a member of the Computer Specialty Program. On matriculating to UW-Whitewater and joining the Track and Field Team, Mira qualified for every national chanpionship during his career, four indoor and four outdoor. He held UWW school records in the 55 meters indoors, and the 100 and 200 meters outdoors when he graduated. Mira won the 55 meters indoors and 100 outdoors at the WIAC Championship and qualified for both national meets again, racing to a third place in the 55 meters indoors at the NCAA Division III championship and winning the 100 meter dash at the '94 NCAA Division III outdoor meet. He earned All-America status three times during his career.
Since graduating from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 1995 with a Bachelor's degree from the Management Computer Systems (MCS) program he has worked for several Information Technology concerns and most recently has taken a position as Service Monitoring Project Manager for the Washington DC Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. He has many accomplishments and even speaking engagements as a result of his work for WMATA.
During the time he worked in the Milwaukee area he served for several years on the WHS Advisory Board for the Computer Information Technology Academy as a valued member and resource. We congratulate Mira on his induction into the UWW Athletic Hall of Fame, thank him very much for his service back to Washington HS and wish him well in his future endeavors.
Another successful WHS Alumni! we are proud of!
BE PROUD, PURGOLDERS!
