Miller, who was previously an electrician and general maintenance worker for the school maintenance department, transferred to his position as Maintenance Supervisor beginning July 2, 2014 after former long-time Maintenance Supervisor Alston Yost retired.

Miller began working for Morgan County Schools as a custodian in 1987, working mostly at Widmyer Elementary and Berkeley Springs High School before he transferred to the maintenance department in 2002. He had his electrician’s, construction and CDL licenses prior to coming to work for the school system and also drove the county schools dump truck.

“It’s been a great ride. I enjoyed it,” Miller said of his time working for Morgan County Schools.

He also said that the other maintenance workers -- Tim Ziegler who does the HVAC systems, Larry Morris that handles the plumbing, Lloyd Keenan that does the commodities and Ritchie Curtis that handles their doors -- all do great work and have made his job so much easier.

Miller said he also deeply appreciated secretary Gail Eddy, “who keeps us all straight. She’s a great lady that knows our business and the business of others she works for, Directors Kandy Kulus and Russell Penner.”

Miller has also officiated at Morgan County and Eastern Panhandle boys’ and girls’ basketball games since 1987 and Pennsylvania basketball games since 1973.
