Unlike some student-athletes who make sports their first priority when choosing a college, Miranda Brown was ready to put athletics in her rear-view mirror after choosing to attend Columbia College.After being accepted into the private all-girls school of a little more than 1,000 students, the Camden High School senior met Columbia College president Elizabeth A. Dinndorf. It was during this meeting in which Dinndorf posed a question to Brown.“The president of the college asked me, ‘Do you play any sports?’ I said that I played tennis and she said, ‘We’re going to get you in contact with the tennis coach.’ I said, ‘That’s awesome,’” Brown said in recalling that conversation.“I looked at (Columbia College) more for academic reasons. I wanted to major in behavioral science and psychology and Columbia gave me the opportunity to study both.”Last Wednesday inside the Camden High School library, Brown signed her National Letter of Intent to play college for the Koalas.
