Andrew S. Miller Scholarship and Lecture
The friends of Andrew S. Miller created this scholarship endowment in the name of the former Territorial Commander and National Commander. Commissioner Miller has served on the Board of Trustees of Asbury University for many years. His interest in Asbury goes back to his early years as a student. Later as a Divisional Youth Secretary stationed in Cincinnati, Ohio, he started what would become The Salvation Army Student Fellowship. Over the years Commissioner Miller has had an abiding interest in the Salvationist youth at Asbury. It is only fitting that this endowment be set up in his honor.
Recognizing the significant contribution to Salvation Army ministry made by the more than 500 Asbury Salvationists, with almost half this number being commissioned officers, the Miller Scholarship is intended to provide a leadership-training program and financial assistance for Salvationist youth of the Southern Territory to attend Asbury University.
Instituted in 1998 by the vision of Territorial Commander Commissioner John Busby, this scholarship recognizes the contributions of Willouise Luce and Charles I. Babcock who co-chaired the scholarship fundraising campaign.
