Connors State College is devastated to learn of the passing of Vann David Miller. Miller, who attended Connors State College was heavily involved in the Warner, Muskogee, and Connors State communities until his passing.
Miller began working at Cross Telephone in 1963 and rose his way through the ranks. He worked in all areas of the business including repairs, sales, and management before eventually rising to the position of CEO. Miller has also served as President of the Oklahoma Telephone Association, a board member of the FiveStar Financial Corporation, a member of the Oklahoma State Insurance Board, a member of the Five Civilized Tribe Museum Foundation, and Chairman and Board member of the Muskogee County Excise Board, and the Muskogee Country Club. Miller also worked with Shriners Hospitals, helping Children who faced unexpected medical challenges.
Additionally, Miller also served as a founding member of the Connors State College Foundation and would later serve as the board’s Chairman. Chances are that if you have attended Connors in the last 50 years, Mr. Miller had a direct impact on your experience. His generosity afforded Connors many amenities, such as Miller’s Crossing, which was named in honor of Mr. Miller and his family.
When asked about the legacy of Vann David Miller, Connors State President, Dr. Ronald Ramming remarked, “Mr. Miller was a wonderful man. He cared about his community and was heavily invested in supporting the Connors State College campus and students. His legacy (and that of his family) will remain for years to come. Miller’s Crossing Student Housing is named in honor of the family. He influenced many lives throughout his time as a founding member of the Development Foundation. We offer sincere condolences to all those that will undoubtedly mourn his loss.”
