The MACAC Maggie Miller Scholarship

Maggie Miller, a school counselor at both DeWitt High School and Okemos High School, was known for her passion for life and the profession.

She was the kind of counselor who invited both students and colleagues into her heart, her office, and her home. For Maggie, this work was about people, first and foremost.

In 2007, Christopher Tremblay, Assistant Vice Chancellor at the University of Michigan – Dearborn, donated funds to establish the Maggie Miller Scholarship through MACAC to honor Maggie's contributions to our field. Maggie passed away in November 2008.
