President Scott D. Miller and Bethany College had a full day on March 21 during the annual Higher Education Day at the Legislature in Charleston, W.Va.

Bethany joined West Virginia’s other four-year and two-year institutions in the day’s activities, which included an informational display in the Upper Rotunda and meetings with public officials.

Miller participated in the Proclamation Presentation by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin at the Governor’s Reception Room, and presentations of a higher-education citation in the House Chamber and a resolution in the Senate Chamber. He then led discussion with other presidents and West Virginia Independent Colleges and Universities Executive Director Ben Exley during meetings with legislators including Delegate Mary Poling, House Education Chair; Sen. Robert Plymale, Senate Education Chair; and Senate President Jeff Kessler.

Mort Gamble, executive assistant to President Miller, and M.E. Yancosek Gamble, chair of the department of communications and media arts, also represented Bethany during Higher Education Day at the Legislature, which is sponsored by the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission.
