‘Georgia Miller puts down roots at UW-Green Bay’

The Green Bay Press-Gazette’s You Magazine has published a nicely reported get-to-know-you feature on Georgia Miller. Editor Amelia Compton Wolff interviewed Miller about her upbringing in the South, professional moves from California to Kansas to Wisconsin, and her pride in having founded and directed Family Crisis Services of Northwest Mississippi, a nonprofit that serves as an advocacy and support center for families, crime victims and children across an economically struggling, 10-county region.  The story also touches on Miller’s family, her diverse educational (bachelor’s in biology and master’s in English literature) and earlier career experiences (management consultant with Arthur Young & Co., and, later, a Red Cross chapter leader), and the priority she and her husband, UWGB Chancellor Gary L. Miller, place on education and helping youth. The story notes Georgia Miller, while a resident of Wilmington, was instrumental in launching North Carolina’s first all-girls public school, a STEAM-focused charter academy to open in 2016.
