  • SALEM, Va. - Roanoke College recently recognized Linda Angle Miller, college archivist and senior lecturer, with the Service To All Roanoke (STAR) Award, which is given to an individual who acts above and beyond the call of the duties of his or her position at Roanoke College. She has been a dedicated staff member for over 25 years.

    Miller is the driving force behind the Fortnightly Club, whose purpose is both to strengthen the ties among female faculty and staff and wives of Roanoke College and to provide service to the College. For nearly 30 years, Miller organized one of the club's annual fundraisers, the Fortnightly Spring Term Exam Survival Kits, which served over 300 students during the busiest time of year. She and her husband, history professor Dr. Mark Miller, have hosted history department graduates and their parents at their home for receptions and department dinners for over 20 years. Linda Miller has represented Roanoke College at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Archives Conference for 20 years, serving as the chair of the conference's Publications Committee for the past four.

    Miller also is involved in her community outside of Roanoke College. She just completed her second term as president of the Salem Historical Society and Museum. As president, she was a leader in the recent renovation and expansion of the museum. She organized its reopening and helped cater the reopening reception. She participates in the museum's fundraising efforts. In addition, Miller serves on various committees within her church. When her children were school-age, she was an active PTA member in their Salem schools and served five years as PTA president. Miller also was a Girl Scout leader for seven years.
