Paul R. and Frieda M. Miller Memorial Scholarship Fund

The Paul R. and Frieda M. Miller Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to enable a deserving student, who is of good moral character, to attend an accredited college. Paul and Frieda Miller were graduates of historically Black institutions. Both were educators, and Frieda taught in the Dayton Public Schools. The Millers, who came from rural communities, found that education and hard work are the keys to successful careers and lives. Their legacy is to provide the opportunity for others to become educated and successful.
