Fund Story

J. Robert and Marjorie Miller made important, lifelong contributions to public education in the La Porte Community Schools. Bob, a long-time superintendent, and Marjorie, a lifelong teacher, shared a passion for education. This fund was created in 2007 to promote teacher excellence and innovation through professional enrichment, renewal and revitalization leading to more engaged teaching and more engaged students within the La Porte Community School Corporation. Grant awards are intended to assist teachers pursuing education opportunities not normally provided by the corporation, such as summer programs, projects, internships and site visits, in order to learn new skills or improve existing ones.
