Gaylin Green Miller Endowed Scholarship in Education

Back to Endowments

This endowed scholarship honors the memory of Gaylin Green Miller who was born at Sparrow Hospital in 1948 while her father was a student at Michigan State College.  Eighteen years later she put her own education on hold in order to care for younger siblings as their mother recuperated from a heart attack.   When she was no longer needed at home, Gaylin enrolled in the School of Education at Central Michigan University to pursue a degree in English and Art History.  It didn’t take long for this charismatic young woman to attract the attention of Mike Miller whom she subsequently married.  Their beloved daughter, Amy, is the product of this happy union that lasted 41 years. 

Gaylin Miller was blessed with many gifts which she freely shared.  Possibly her greatest asset was her genuine concern for others.  She continuously saw the best in everyone and would enthusiastically lend a helping hand or offer a listening ear.  With a positive attitude about life, Gaylin sought to make the best of every situation.  It would please her to know, that even posthumously, she’s assisting others in the pursuit of their dreams.
