Herkimer County Habitat for Humanity has announced the election of Pat Miller as their new president.
She replaces Christine Mergenthaler, who recently died.
Miller has been an active member of Habitat since the first meeting in 1998. She has been a board member since 1999, served as treasurer for many years and also served as finance committee chairwoman.
Miller has been the senior financial aid assistant for the past 15 years at Herkimer College, where she assists students and parents through the complex world of financial aid to help them pay for college.
“I look forward to working with our dedicated volunteers and board members and carrying out our mission of building simple, decent homes for families in need in the same spirit that Chris led our organization for the last 12 years,” said Miller.
The organization has recently selected a new partner family and is now on a quest to find a suitable house in the Herkimer, Mohawk or Ilion area to rehabilitate for the family.
