As part of the commemoration of its 70th Anniversary in 2016, Miller, Miller & Canby established a scholarship to be awarded annually to students from Richard Montgomery High School who will attend Montgomery College. The Scholarship will be awarded for the 7th year this May. The Scholarship provides up to $5,000 per year for tuition and fees and is renewable for a second year. The Scholarship recognizes Miller, Miller & Canby’s long history of service to the Montgomery County community as well as its presence in Rockville where it has maintained its offices for its entire history.
The firm chose to award the Scholarship to students who will be attending Montgomery College because, like Miller, Miller & Canby, Montgomery College has been a part of the fabric of Montgomery County, providing affordable college level educational opportunities to residents. Miller, Miller & Canby has been privileged to provide legal representation to the College. By providing this scholarship for students to attend Montgomery College, the firm recognizes the importance of the College’s mission, becoming a partner in this small way to support that mission.
Richard Montgomery High School was selected because the school shares a similar place within the growth of the City of Rockville. Richard Montgomery High School is located just a few hundred yards from Miller, Miller & Canby’s offices. For those who have toured the reconstructed school building, a replica of the brick façade of the original school was incorporated into the interior of the building in the location of the school’s original site. Indeed, it was the original “Rockville High School.” In that sense, Richard Montgomery and Miller, Miller & Canby have been long-time neighbors in Rockville.
The Scholarship is awarded to students whose record of academic performance and community involvement reflect both the ability and commitment to succeed. By the same token, the firm hopes the Scholarship will provide an opportunity to academically deserving students who, because of personal circumstances, might otherwise have difficulty financing their attendance at Montgomery College.
The Scholarship recipient will be announced at the Richard Montgomery Award Ceremony in May.
