Message from Loyola’s president, Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J.: Gratitude for the contributions of Maryland Senate President Emeritus Miller
| By Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J.
Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president of Loyola University Maryland, released this statement on Maryland Senate President Emeritus Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr.’s Dec. 23 announcement of his retirement:
“During his 50 years in public service, Senate President Emeritus Thomas V. Mike Miller, Jr., has given tirelessly to the state of Maryland and to its citizens, leading with conviction and wisdom. Through the years, I—along with my predecessors in the presidency of Loyola University Maryland, Rev. James Sellinger, S.J., and Rev. Harold Ridley, S.J.—have appreciated his commitment to higher education and his support of Loyola in particular. Serving on the Maryland Senate, he has tried to build connections across parties, bringing to issues an understanding of Marylanders’ needs and a desire to strengthen and advance programs for those at the margins of our society. A parent of a Loyola graduate, Senate President Emeritus Miller has blended an incomparable and formidable legacy of public service with his support of Catholicism. On behalf of Loyola, I extend our deep appreciation and congratulations to the Senate President Emeritus on his distinguished career. As he begins this next chapter of his life, our prayers are with him and his family.”
