In 2017, AEHS Foundation renamed the East Coast Conference Student Competition in memory of the former Chair of the competition, Michael E. Miller. Mike was an integral part of the Scientific Advisory Board, conference planning, and the student competition for many years. He was passionate about the competition and the next generation of environmental scientists who came to showcase their work at the conferences. His dedication to furthering science through knowledge, education, and the emerging leadership of students was his hallmark.
