Distinguished Alumni Award 2017
Randolph L. Miller (’67, Questrom’69) received the 2017 CGS Distinguished Alumni Award in recognition of his tireless advocacy for BU and for the economic development of his hometown, Portland, Oregon.
In addition to being a loyal and generous alumnus and a member of the Dean’s Advisory Board for the past decade, Miller is president of Produce Row Property Management Company. A Portland native, Miller works on city boards and commissions creating public and private partnerships to understand, he says, “what is practical, pragmatic, and reasonable to attempt to achieve.” His work includes serving as director of AAA of Oregon / Idaho, director of the Air Advice Corporation, and director of the PGE Foundation. His civic-mindedness and leadership have earned him the Port of Portland Compass Award, the American Diabetes Association’s Father of the Year Award, and the Spirit of Portland Award.
