Remembering James S. Miller

After the tragic death of James Miller, professor of biology, on Sunday, Oct. 9, 2011, the GC community mourns the loss of a valued professor and friend, and has come together in prayer, song and remembrance during convocation, a prayer vigil and memorial to support one another in this difficult time.

On Monday, Nov. 7, the GC community gathered during convocation to “Remember with Love” the contributions of biology professor James S. Miller to Goshen College over the course of his 31 year tenure. The time included storytelling by colleagues and students and a slide show developed by Jim’s children accompanied by a recording of the GC orchestra tribute to Jim at their Oct. 22 concert. Jim’s wife Linda spoke on “Things Jim Would Have Said If He Had Known He Would Die Today.” There was a reception in the Fellowship Hall afterward.
