Carl Miller Memorial Scholarship

Carl Miller worked all of his life for the West Palm Beach firm of Gee & Jenson until retirement. In 1994, he was presented the Fellow Member of the Year Award for the Florida Surveying and Mapping Society.  Even though he was a Professional Land Surveyor, he liked to refer to himself as a Right-of-Way Engineer.  Upon his retirement, he donated all of his books and records to the University of Florida Geomatics Program.  At a gathering in 2010 of Past Presidents of the Palm Beach Chapter, he recounted many stories of his years in the Land Surveying profession. With his passing in June of 2011, the Palm Beach Chapter established an Academic Scholarship in his memory to honor his dedication to the Profession.
