Re: Thank You Bill Miller

Here's thanks to Bill for making it possible for our 2010 driver to compete (some accessibility considerations were required). He was very reasonable to work with when we approached him about that. Best luck in whatever comes next.

Re: Thank You Bill Miller

Thank you Bill,
Between listening to your FRC live talks at world championships and reading your Bill's Blog posts, I have spent a lot of time reading or listening to you. This was not time wasted, but time well-spent. I may be only in my second year of FIRST, but I know that you have helped make FIRST the way it is today. You have made a large impact on my life, and I would like to thank you for it.

Thank you again!

Re: Thank You Bill Miller

My first conversation with Mr. Miller occurred at 2011 Alamo. I had applied for one of the GDC positions and he sought me out to talk about it. Obviously I did not join the GDC, but I have never felt so honored to not be selected. Bill is one of the scariest-from-a-distance, but kind and attentive in reality people I have ever encountered. (Like Mr. Novak actually)

I was very saddened to hear of his departure from FIRST. As one of the participants in the Einstein test, I was totally in awe of the professional and honest manner he handled the teams in a difficult situation. Frank Merrick, who is acting FRC director, is a wonderful person and I know we are in good hands; but our community will suffer for the loss of Bill Miller.

Blessings to you, my friend, and thank you for all you did for us.

Re: Thank You Bill Miller

Wow, had no idea!

Thank You Bill Miller, and for all that you have done to improve FIRST with the many changes in recent years.

I had the chance to sit and chat with him one-on-one during lunch, and present alongside him in Hawaii during week 6 at one of our math NCTM meetings. I learned a lot about his past work experiences prior to FIRST and many of the tasks he's worked on during his time in FIRST.

Aloha and Best Wishes,
Glenn
