Dr. April Miller has been appointed to the Frederick Community College Board of Trustees by Maryland Governor Larry Hogan.

Dr. Miller will fill the seat left vacant when former Trustee and past Board Chair Debra Borden’s term expired.

Dr. Miller served two consecutive terms on the Frederick County Public Schools (FCPS) Board of Education, from 2010-2018. While on the Board, she served as vice president, chair of the Curriculum Committee, and chair of the Strategic Special Education Workgroup. Dr. Miller was also a member of committees on policy, budget savings, career and technology, drug awareness, and strategic planning.

As a Board of Education member, Dr. Miller helped create educational policies, balanced capital and operating budgets exceeding half a billion dollars annually, and worked on school construction planning.

“I am grateful to Governor Larry Hogan for appointing me to the FCC Board of Trustees,” said Dr. Miller. “FCC is a cornerstone of the educational landscape of Frederick County, and the partnerships it has built with other educational organizations have become a model in the State of Maryland. I am excited to work with FCC students, faculty, and staff.”

In her professional life, Dr. Miller is an optometrist in her 18th year of practice, currently at Dr. Nathan and Dr. Miller in Frederick.
Dr. Miller received a Bachelor’s of Arts in biology and psychology from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). She received a Doctorate of Optometry from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, now Salus University.

A longtime Frederick County resident, Dr. Miller graduated from Middletown High School. She and her husband, Todd, live in Middletown with their three children.
