Lizzie Miller Memorial Scholarship Fund

“ I am excited and curious about where my life will lead me, but I am going to make sure I meet each day with a positive outlook, appreciate the people I love, and take time to try to make everyday memorable. I will go into every challenge being open-minded and hoping for the best. Every race that I swim and test that I take will be treated as an opportunity to display what I have worked so hard to achieve. God gives us every moment and we owe it to Him to make it special, because only he knows when it will be our last. “
~Lizzie Miller

The Lizzie Miller Memorial Scholarship Fund honors the memory of our daughter and sister, Lizzie, a member of the Lourdes Class of ’08. In her memory, a scholarship fund has been established that will provide need-based financial aid to students attending Our Lady of Lourdes High School. 

Lizzie greatly enjoyed her years at Our Lady of Lourdes and made many wonderful, caring friends. The dedicated teachers and staff created an environment that encouraged learning while supporting an opportunity to pursue extracurricular interests, particularly swimming, which Lizzie loved.  She graduated into a community of well-respected alumni and was able to share her many talents with others at Loyola University. We hope that others will be able to do the same through the Lizzie Miller Memorial Scholarship fund.

The memory of Lizzie’s smile, her kindness, and the words that she left to us all is a reminder that we need to keep looking forward and remain optimistic. Lizzie touched many lives while she was with us, and to be joined by so many of our family, friends, and classmates in continuing her legacy brings us much joy.  No gift is too large or too small.  Please also remember that you can increase the value of your gift if your employer offers a matching gift program.

Our sincerest thanks to you for your consideration of a donation to this fund.

Best regards,

Bill, Karen & Carolyn Miller
