Bob and Tia McMillan are active in the life of Shepherd University. Bob serves as the chair of the Create the Future campaign, and his strong leadership has pushed Shepherd very near the $20 million fundraising goal. Bob also served on the University Board of Governors from 2001 to 2009, one of the original members of the governing board. He just completed a two-term stint as board chair in June and was recognized by the board in a resolution that cited his "dynamic leadership and wisdom in matters of intergovernmental relations" and his giving of "time, talents, and special generosity to the enrichment of the University."
Bob and Tia are familiar faces at Shepherd ceremonies and celebrations including commencement and building dedications where Bob presided as master of ceremonies during his tenure as Board of Governors chair. Tia, after many years of service as a member of the board of the Contemporary American Theater Festival, now serves as a member of CATF's honorary board.
The McMillans' love of Shepherd and theater was evident when they established the McMillan Family Scholarship for Theater which provides scholarships for theater students at Shepherd. Bob and Tia also have made a major contribution in support of the Create the Future campaign.
"As residents of the Eastern Panhandle, Tia and I think that Shepherd University enhances the quality of life and economic growth of the region," said Bob.
