"The most rewarding aspect of my retail automotive career is helping my employees develop through in-house training," nominee Miller said.

A 1964 graduate of John Handley High School in Winchester, Virginia, Miller studied music and earned a B.A. from Friends University in Wichita, Kansas, in 1970, and an M.A. from the University of Kansas in Lawrence in 1973.

He joined his twin brother, George L. Miller, now deceased, in his auto group as vice president of sales upon graduating from college. Today, Miller is owner and dealer principal of four new-car dealerships (representing five new-car franchises) and a used- car store, all located in Martinsburg and Winchester.

Miller is committed to education initiatives and supports area high schools through contributions and sponsorships. He also has offered cooperative education programs and sponsored an automotive technology scholarship at the James Rumsey Technical Institute in Martinsburg.

Other groups Miller contributes to include American Cancer Society; American Heart Association; Berkeley County 4-H; Berkeley County Backpack Program, which provides nutritious meals to children in need on weekends and during vacations; Berkeley County Meals on Wheels; Martinsburg-Berkeley Co. Parks & Recreation; Breast and Body Health, which brings comfort, care and services to cancer patients; Friends of NRA; Hospice of the Panhandle; Special Olympics; Toys for Tots; United Way; West Virginia University Mountaineer Athletic Club; West Virginia flood relief; and Young Life of Eastern Panhandle, to name a few.

Miller was nominated for the TIME Dealer of the Year award by Ruth Lemmon, president of the West Virginia Automobile & Truck Dealers Association. He and his wife, Joan, have three children.
