Miller scholarship fund hits $50K

Posted on June 11, 2008

Substantial corporate contributions at APTA’s Rail Conference, coupled with contributions from several individuals and companies have helped push the Raymond C. Miller Scholarship Fund past $50,000.

As a result, the first scholarship in Miller’s honor will be awarded this October at APTA’s Annual Meeting and EXPO in San Diego to someone wishing to pursue a career in transit marketing, communications or public relations.


Miller, who served as executive director of the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority in Tampa, Fla., since 2005, died April 27, 2007 following a prolonged illness.


Before his work in Tampa, Miller was executive director of the Delaware Transit Corporation. Under his direction, that agency received APTA's Outstanding Public Transportation System award in 2003. He had more than 25 years of transit management experience, also working for the Central Ohio Transit Authority in Columbus and the Utah Transit Authority in Salt Lake City.
