The idea to form the Miller Institute for Public Policy was inspired by the legacy of former Georgia Governor Zell Miller. On January 14, 1991, Zell Miller took the oath of office as Georgia’s 79th Governor. The central purpose of his administration would be to prepare Georgia for the 21st century.
While a candidate for Governor in 1990, Miller had an idea to create a statewide lottery exclusively for the purpose of funding education initiatives in Georgia. Today, the Georgia Lottery Corporation has transferred more than $18.1 billion to the students of Georgia. Over the past 25 years, this money has allowed more than 1.7 million students to go to college in Georgia on HOPE Scholarships, more than 1.4 million four-year olds to begin their education early in Georgia’s Voluntary Prekindergarten Program, and all of Georgia’s public schools have benefited from over $1.8 billion in capital outlay, computer and technology upgrades. These programs represent the signature achievements of Governor Miller’s forty year career in public service.
This is the type of bold leadership and vision the Miller Institute aims to promote and encourage.
