Douglas Miller Honorary Scholarship

Barbara Daye, Dean of Students, emerita at Appalachian State University, wishes to remember the Miller family through funding a scholarship for a deserving University Recreation student employee. This recognition goes to an individual who serves University Recreation as a genuine and selfless ambassador just as Douglas Miller did as a New York firefighter when entering the World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001. His dedication, courage, and selfless service is a distinguished example for the students of University Recreation. Mr. Miller served his profession honorably, which University Recreation wishes to promote in their student employees through recognition and awarding of this scholarship in Mr. Miller's name.

Douglas Miller, New York Fire Department

The award is for the amount of $500 and is awarded for each fall semester.

We will award four(4) scholarships for the Fall 2018 semester.
