The Miller Family Grandchildren Gift $62,500 for SLCC Student Scholarships

The grandchildren of philanthropists Larry H. and Gail Miller gifted $62,500 to Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) for scholarships through the Miller Legacy Project as part of the Larry H. & Gail Miller Family Foundation. The gift will also provide childcare vouchers to make pursuing education more accessible for student parents.

This is the first time the third generation of the Miller family has given to Salt Lake Community College. The gift will make an indelible impact on students’ lives and, in turn, their families and communities. SLCC has the most diverse student body among Utah’s higher education institutions and nearly half of SLCC’s students are the first in their families to attend college.

“For many years, the Miller family’s conviction in the transformative power of education has been indisputable. Now this legacy of generosity continues as Gail and Larry’s grandchildren provide scholarships for our students, many of whom would otherwise not have access to education beyond high school. Their gift is deeply appreciated,” said Deneece G. Huftalin, president of SLCC.

The Miller Legacy Project provides an educational giving experience to future generations of the Miller family and is specifically designed to perpetuate the philanthropic legacy of both Gail and Larry.

“We hope these scholarships and childcare vouchers help students overcome barriers often found when continuing their education,” said Bryce Miller, co-chair of the Miller Legacy Project and Gail and Larry Miller’s grandson. “Our family is passionate about increasing access to education to create the next generation of leaders.”
