The award will be presented April 26 at Valley United Way’s Annual Meeting & Recognition Dinner at Villa Bianca in Seymour. It has been presented annually since 1971 and recognizes individuals for lifetime service in the valley involving more than one organization or town.

Miller, who is president of the Ned Miller Agency, A Division of Starkweather & Shepley, currently is a member of the Board at Valley United Way and co-chair of its allocations committee.

He has served as chairman of the board and also served twice as the chairman of the Annual Community campaign. 

Jack Walsh, president and C.O.O. of Valley United Way said, “Ned’s incredible record of service to Valley United Way is just the tip of the iceberg of his community service. Very few people have had his depth of experience, especially in leadership positions.” 

Miller's record of service includes involvement with the Shelton Jaycees (president), Ansonia Rotary Club (president), Housatonic Council Boy Scouts of America (president), Parent Child Resource Center (vice president) and Mason Temple Association (treasurer). 

His other board affiliations include Griffin Hospital, the Recreation Camp, Shelton Economic Development Corporation and the Greater Valley Chamber of Commerce. 

He also is an alternate member of Shelton’s Planning and Zoning Commission. 

Miller is a graduate of St. Bernard College and resides in Shelton with his wife Marianne. He is the father of Nick Miller of Denver, Colo. and Erica Laudano of Manhattan, and has two grandchildren. 

The award is named for the late Charles H. Flynn, editor of The Evening Sentinel and one of the founders of the Valley United Fund. 

The Valley United Way serves Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour and Shelton.
