Volunteer Spotlight - Sue Miller
Sue Miller
Volunteer Spotlight

Sue Miller, a retired Aurora Public Schools elementary P.E. teacher, began volunteering at the Aurora History Museum nearly 15 years ago. Her experiences as an educator and as a member of the Trolley Trailer 610 restoration team uniquely suit her for her current role at the museum. Sue interacts with visitors as a docent in the permanent exhibit on Aurora history and gives talks inside Trolley Trailer 610, explaining its history to school groups. Visitors consistently give the museum wonderful feedback about Sue.
 
Sue served on the Aurora Museum Foundation Board of Directors and continues to be an active member of the organization. She has also been president and treasurer of Delta Kappa Gamma. We're grateful for Sue's many dedicated hours of service in a wide range of jobs over the years!
