About Jim Miller

Jim Miller passed away in August 2007 while hiking the high country along Lake Superior’s north shore. Like the white pine swaying in the winds that sweep that land, Jim stands tall, leaving a lasting impression on hearts and minds of the many who knew him. The James S. Miller Memorial Scholarship is awarded annually to a student who intends to pursue post-secondary education in natural resources or a related field (e.g. fish and wildlife, forestry, etc.) – a pursuit that Jim saw as so critical to present and future generations. Recipients will be from Northern Ontario – the part of this world that held such a special place in Jim’s heart, and where he spent his career making a difference. Demonstrated desire and commitment, not academic marks, will be decisive factors in selecting recipients – a reflection of Jim’s ability to sense the potential in others.
