Mrs. Miller hopes to continue in the footsteps of the late Julie Adams Rogers and make the Tourist Bureau an economic force in DeSoto parish.  A few of her goals for this new position include creating new tourism venues, increasing signage and historic information for visitors, and meeting with mayors and community leaders to hear their ideas of how to attract tourists to their city, town, or village.
