PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A former West Virginia University at Parkersburg president who died last year left nearly $1 million to the school.

The community college said Wednesday that Eldon Miller’s gift will be used to fund academic scholarships. Miller asked that the scholarships be administered through the WVU at Parkersburg Foundation.

Miller died May 31, 2013, at age 77. He was WVU Parkersburg’s longest-serving president, retiring in 2000 after 18 years. A student plaza constructed on the campus in 2009 is named in Miller’s honor.
