College of Business Receives New Scholarship Endowment to Benefit Accounting Students
December 19, 2022
College of Business alumnus, Lealan (Lee) Miller and his wife, Linda Miller, have established a new scholarship. The Lealan and Linda Miller Family Scholarship will benefit a College of Business student majoring in Accounting with a moderate to high level of financial need.
As the oldest of eight children, Lee grew up in both California and Idaho, while Linda came from a family of seven, growing up in Utah and Idaho. They met at Ricks College (BYU-I) and have been married since 1985.
Lee graduated from Idaho State in 1989 with his Bachelor’s in Accounting and moved on to graduate from California State University with a Master’s in Accounting. He worked for over two years in Sacramento and moved back to Idaho, where he now partners with the firm Eide Bailly LLP.
“Idaho State has a part of our hearts, and over the years, I have maintained contact with the accounting professors, recruiting on campus, as well as presenting to Beta Alpha Psi and participating in the annual Accounting Symposium and the Accounting Department’s Advisory Board,” Lee said. “We have been blessed and want to provide some help to those accounting students that have the need. We were blessed to receive a few accounting scholarships while attending ISU, which went a long way.”
“We are hoping that the scholarship will help those that are struggling financially to finish their education while promoting the accounting department and the accounting industry,” said Lee.
"Thank you to Lee and Linda Miller for establishing this new scholarship which will help ISU College of Business students reach their educational dreams for generations to come," said Shane Hunt, College of Business Dean.
