R.G. Miller Engineers, Inc. has established the Richard
G. Miller ’55 Memorial Scholarship to provide one or more scholarships to
full-time students in good standing who are pursuing an undergraduate degree in
civil and environmental engineering from Texas A&M University.
Jack Miller ’81, president of R.G. Miller Engineers, Inc., said he hopes this scholarship will aid students in their journey to a career in engineering.
“Our firm’s first choice is to hire from Texas A&M,” Miller said. “The quality of engineers from A&M is unmatched, and with this endowment we hope to support the university’s initiative to graduate these students.”
Miller credits the College of Engineering for teaching him what he needed to be successful in his career.
“I grew up working for my father’s business, but it wasn’t until I was exposed to the engineering curriculum that I was able to make the connections between real-world applications and the science behind it,” Miller said.
Miller said Texas A&M has been a great resource for their firm, and they wanted to give back by being a resource to the College of Engineering.
“I had been approached by the development office over the years and had been planning on funding an endowment for quite some time,” Miller said. “I was convinced to pull the trigger and the time was right to establish a scholarship to honor my father, a Texas A&M College of Engineering graduate and founder of the firm.”
How to Give
