Governor Miller addresses Emory alumni

Georgia Gov. Zell Miller added a sense of heightened prestige to the annual Emory Medal awards at this year's Alumni Weekend festivities. Miller told the 300 alumni gathered in Glenn Memorial auditorium that as governor he wanted "to create a culture of higher expectations, in which the question would not be whether to go to college but which college or technical school to go to." University President William M. Chace saluted Gov. Miller as "the single best friend of education in this state," for his support of the Hope Scholarship program and the Georgia Research Alliance.
