TERRE HAUTE -

The Terre Haute Boys and Girls Club Board of Directors has named Trent Miles the organization’s chief executive officer. Miles, a Terre Haute native, was previously a football coach at the collegiate and professional levels.

Miles will manage daily operations of the club and launch strategic initiatives to expand programming, community partnerships and fundraising. 

Most recently he was as an assistant offensive coach for the Philadelphia Eagles and was a part of the Super Bowl LII Championship staff. Miles also served as the head coach for the Georgia State University and Indiana State University football programs.

“It is a great honor to be selected for this position. As a young kid growing up in the club and being around role models like Max Jones, Jack Smith, Jimmy Smith, Larry Bird, Terry McGee and the many others that made the club such a great place, you just want to give all you can to make it a special place for our youth to grow today,” said Trent Miles. “As a football coach my goal was that when athletes moved on from our program they were ready to make a positive impact in society and that is what I hope for the youth that come into the Boys and Girls Club. The greatest opportunities for the club start with being a positive impact on the youth of Terre Haute and to grow within the community.”

Miles is a graduate of Terre Haute South Vigo High School and Indiana State University. 

He will step into his new role in October.

      "Problems cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them," is attributed to Einstein over 75 years ago. This still holds true, particularly in challenging communications. Many people address conflict at the level it was created by rehashing and building more evidence for their ‘side’ of an argument. Repeating a position tends to intensify the separation of people.

    • Who Pays Debts After Death?

      If you have a mortgage on your house, what happens when you die?  What about a car lease or credit card debt?  Are your heirs required to pay off what you owe? What is the financial legacy that you will leave behind?  Your legacy could be the bequest of property or money, but it could also mean inheriting debt. It’s not uncommon for spouses or others to get bombarded with collection calls from creditors asking to pay the bills of a family member who has died.
