That position provided me a wonderful opportunity to assist educators throughout the organization in discovering and utilizing various information technology solutions to ensure student success,” said Miller. “In addition, it would be hard to imagine a more caring and dedicated group of people than those I have been privileged to work alongside during the past 15 years. I wish them much continued success.”
