Hillsborough County to honor community activist Queen Richardson Miller

TAMPA — Hillsborough County Social Services Department will dedicate the Queen Miller Suite in the Lee Davis Community Resource Center Mon, Oct. 20 at 10 a.m.  The center is located at 3402 N. 22nd St. in Tampa.

Miller will be recognized and commended for her contributions and support to families advocating for health care and social services programs for citizens to improve our community. The public is invited to attend.

She has been involved in civic activities in Hillsborough County for more than six decades. Passionate about serving the needs of the most impoverished and deserving citizens in the East Tampa/College Hill community, she played an integral part in the creation of the Lee Davis Community Resource Center.

In the 1970s, while Chair of the Lee Davis Health Consumer Council, she voiced to our County Commissioners, Mayor and members of  the business community about the need for this health and social services facility.

Miller is a former elementary school educator in Hillsborough County and Gadsden County. She attended Gibbs Junior College, Florida A & M University and the University of South Florida. She has supported the needs of families and, after retiring, worked tirelessly in the community and her church St. John MB Church.

Following the ceremony, all attendees are invited to tour the Queen Miller Suite and enjoy light refreshments, courtesy of St. John MB Church and the NAACP Hillsborough County Branch.
