After serving as Mitchell High School's vocal music director since 2007, Chris Miller is leaving to take a job near Chicago.

Miller will finish the 2015-2016 school year in Mitchell, and start a position in the Wheaton Warrenville School District, in Wheaton, Illinois, according to Joe Graves, superintendent of the Mitchell School District.

Miller is also the director of Friend de Coup, MHS' award-winning show choir. Graves said he does not yet know who will take over Miller's position in Mitchell, but said that the search is underway.

"We're going to start an exhaustive search and involve a number of people, hopefully including some parents of the show choir group, and others who are heavily involved." Graves said.

He explained that applications have been posted online and that the school has already received phone calls about the position. Graves was confident in being able to find another high-caliber director.

"We're very sorry to lose him," Graves said. "But we've had a string of really great directors going back a long ways and, fortunately, the strength of the program has always been able to attract another very strong person."
