Roger Miller, Dearborn resident and owner of Spectrum Signs & Designs, was recently honored as 2013 Person of the Year by the Inter-Service Club Council of Dearborn for his outstanding volunteer service and contributions to the community.
The award was presented at the November luncheon that recognized nominees from each of Dearborn’s service organizations.
Miller was nominated by the Rotary Club of Dearborn. He currently serves as club treasurer, a position he has held for 11 years. Miller previously served as club president from 1985-86, and as Dearborn Rotary Foundation president from 1989-90, the club reported.
According to Dearborn Rotarian Susan Surducan, Miller is involved in almost every activity of the Dearborn Rotary Club.
“He is our ‘go-to’ guy for guidance and is often to first to volunteer,” said Surducan.
Miller plays the pivotal role of organizing "Santa Snaps," the club's biggest community service project of the year. He is also the driving force behind the success of the club's annual Hugh Archer Memorial Golf Outing, which helps raise funds for scholarships that go to deserving Dearborn high school seniors, the club reported.
As the former owner of Harry Miller Florists, Miller was very active on the state and local level of the floral society, and has helped run several Dearborn school millage elections, participating in a variety of school activities when his children were young.
Prior to receiving the Inter-Service Club honor, Miller was named Dearborn Rotarian of the Year for 2012-13.
“It is difficult for us to put into words how much Roger means to Dearborn Rotary,” said Surducan. “This kind of dedication to a service organization and our city, resulting in the betterment of others, is worthy of praise.”For more information about the Rotary Club of Dearborn, visit www.dearbornrotary.org.
