In Memory of Esther Miller

Esther Miller, a dedicated and passionate supporter of the arts, youth theatre, and the Cobre Valley Center for the Arts, passed away Saturday, March 12.

Among the many positive ways she supported our community, she was a founding sponsor of the Summer Youth Musical Theatre Program. Her love for the work of arts education was felt through her enthusiasm, her joyful spirit, and her passion. She deeply understood the ways that SYMTP and the local Boy Scouts of America troops make our community stronger and closer. We are all forever improved by the lasting impact she has made.
