Trustee Miller '73 Continues to Pay It Forward

At the football team's home opener last weekend, the College saluted the ongoing generosity of a trustee and alumnus.

Larry Miller ’73, who has generously given back to his alma mater over the years, oversaw the official presentation of a gleaming new scoreboard he funded for Wright Stadium. Thanks to Miller, the football, field hockey, and lacrosse programs will play proudly in the shadow of the scoreboard for years to come.

In the Hawks Nest during the game, Hartwick President Darren Reisberg; Vice Presidents James Kellerhouse, Gail Glover and Laurel Bongiorno; Executive Director of Athletics John Czarnecki; members of the faculty and staff; and athletics coaches got together for a “thank you” to Miller. Two gifts were presented to Miller as a token of the College’s appreciation: a framed photo of the scoreboard with hand-decorated matting crafted by Associate Field Hockey Head Coach Carissa Warren and a custom Hartwick football jersey.

The Hawks Nest also boasts a new, smaller version of the outdoor scoreboard, making tracking the action easier for those inside. Both scoreboards include recognition for Miller and his late wife’s generosity.

And as was only fitting, the first final score displayed on the scoreboard was the team’s thrilling, come-from-behind victory over Keystone College, 31-21.

The College will also help affirm Miller’s legacy during True Blue Weekend later this month when it officially names its newest residence hall in honor of his late wife, Dr. Judith Day. She passed away in November 2022.

When the building opened in August 2017, it was the first residence hall built on campus since Hilltop and Oyaron Houses opened in 1995 and the first new standalone structure since Golisano Hall opened in 2008. The $7.1 million living-learning apartment community houses up to 72 upper-class students. Again, Miller was a major source of its funding.

"Larry’s commitment to Hartwick is nearly unrivaled in our 225-year history. His desire to have the College name its newest residence hall in honor of his beloved wife, Judith, will provide a symbol for the Hartwick community that affirms his spirit, leadership, and devotion to the College.”

Darren Reisberg


A ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place on Saturday, September 23, at 11 a.m. on the porch of the apartment complex. All are invited to attend.
