Dr. Corey Miller has been named the new executive director of Development and the Forsyth Tech Foundation. Miller comes to the Foundation from Crisis Control Ministry in Winston-Salem where he served as director of Philanthropy and fostered a culture that supported the short-term emergency needs of Forsyth County residents in financial crisis.
A native of Winston-Salem, Miller’s career has been focused within the public sector. He has more than 25 years of experience working in non-profit, church, and governmental organizations. After graduating from RJ Reynolds High School, he received his BA from Sewanee – The University of the South and received a Master of Public Administration from the University of Kentucky.
“What attracted me to Forsyth Tech was the quality of talented staff members, President Gary Green’s visionary leadership, a strong and diverse Foundation Board of Directors, and the relevance of Forsyth Tech’s mission,” Miller said. “I know that commitment to give people opportunities through education and training is the cornerstone of Forsyth Tech—providing pathways to possibilities. I believe that there has never been a more important time for a more important role for this unique institution.”
Miller is an ordained United Methodist minister and has worked in two Forsyth County congregations.
