TC Sweethearts

Elizabeth and Miles White
Graduation
We have Teachers College and Whittier Hall to thank for our marriage!

When Elizabeth and Miles first met at TC in the fall of 2006, the St. Louis Cardinals were playing in the World Series. Elizabeth is from St. Louis, Missouri, so Miles knew that he would be able to find her in Whittier Hall’s 10th floor TV lounge watching the game, and that gave Miles extra motivation to go up and watch the game too.

Little did Elizabeth know that Miles, who is from Denver, Colorado, cared little about the outcome of the game and was mainly there to get to know Elizabeth. Miles told Elizabeth that he would take her out to celebrate if the Cardinals won. So they were both very happy when the Cardinals won the 2006 World Series! When they went out to celebrate, they discovered they had a lot in common — especially their shared love of old, classic movies.

Halloween

 


 

 


There was a TC Halloween party scheduled for the following weekend (also on the 10th floor lounge of Whittier Hall). When Elizabeth showed up dressed as Audrey Hepburn and Miles showed up dressed as Charlie Chaplin, they knew the stars were aligned.

Wedding They’ve been together ever since. They were married at the St. Louis Jewel Box in Forest Park on May 30, 2009.
