Volunteer of the Month for October 2018-Susan Miller

Susan Miller stands out as an extraordinary volunteer. Upon retirement as a Registered Dietician and Certified Diabetic Educator Susan moved to ColumSusan Millerbia to be near her grandchildren. The idleness of retirement didn’t suit Susan and she soon became heavily involved with the City’s Volunteer Programs. Susan is a trained volunteer Recycling Ambassador, is involved with the Adopt-A-Trail Program and assists with many Parks and Recreations events.

Susan has a passion for the environment, believing that each of us must take steps to be kinder to the earth. She began her involvement with recycling 40 years ago with her son recycling newspapers as a scouting project. The City’s Recycling Ambassadors program was a natural fit for Susan. She is an experienced and gifted educator and truly enjoys promoting waste reduction and recycling through developing curriculum and presenting to young children or adults. 

Susan brings warmth and energy to all she does: promoting waste reduction, assisting children with craft activities or clearing honeysuckle. The generosity of her time, talents and talents help to make Columbia a great place to live, work, learn and play.
