More about Leonard A. Miller

The Miller Award was established to honor the example and memory of Dr. Leonard A. Miller, who had served on the rehabilitation counseling education faculty for 15 years at the time of his death in 1981. He was known as a fine scholar, an inspiring teacher, and an excellent counselor.

He was an exceptional humanitarian who always had time for people, whether they were persons in trouble, or people who just wanted to talk and interact. He gave generously of his love and resources. Professionally, he was frequently the person who saw the issues most clearly and offered the best suggestions for dealing with the problems at hand.

This award acknowledges students who demonstrate the potential to develop into the type of professional that Dr. Miller would admire.
