Miller selected as Lifetime Pioneer
PLATTEVILLE, Wis. — Matt Miller, a fall 2013 graduate from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville, has been selected as a Lifetime Pioneer. The designation was made by the UW-Platteville Alumni Association, which annually recognizes outstanding graduates by awarding them life membership in the association, currently a $400 value.
The award is based on a variety of criteria, including campus activities, leadership, community involvement, professional development and employment, academic excellence, and anticipated future involvement in the Alumni Association.
Miller, a native of Floyds Knobs, Ind., and a 1997 graduate from Floyd Central High School, earned a bachelor’s degree in reclamation-environmental conservation.
Miller, a Marine Corps veteran, served in the United States military from 2001-04. He will be working with the Natural Resource Conservation Service, beginning this month.
While on campus, Miller was involved with the Reclamation Club and completed internships with the NRCS.
He also made two UW-Platteville milk cans that were auctioned during the “An Evening in Monte Carlo” fund-raiser. Last year’s milk can had the highest bid of the night, raising $1,000.
