Preparing Young Professionals For Successful Careers In Public Service.

The purpose of the Miller Leadership Academy is to prepare young professionals for successful careers in public service. The program is nonpartisan and focuses primarily on three core elements: leadership development, the role of government, and policy

Participants gain skills to help them become effective leaders and decision makers as they learn to navigate the world of public service. Participation is a privilege and we take pride in our selection process. Our goal is to assemble a class that reflects the diversity of Georgia on the basis of age, gender, geography, race, and religion.

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. Miller served as
Lt. Governor of Georgia from 1975-1991, Governor of Georgia from 1991-1999 and U.S.
Senator from 2000-2005. He is the only keynote speaker to address both major political parties
at their conventions, Democrats in 1992 and Republicans in 2004.

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 old children 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
