Roger Millar ‘61 says his time at Webb had “a profound impact” on his life, and has given him “perseverance, a well described moral compass, a clear desire for the goals long ahead.” Giving back, he served as class agent for 12 years, leading his class to seven consecutive years of 100 percent participation. “Just like one is always a Marine, I think you could argue that one is always a Webbie,” he said. Millar has a bachelor’s degree from Occidental College in economics and business administration. He worked for 15 years at Northrop Grumman Corporation until he retired as a manager of subcontracts and procurement in 1998, and was the executive director of the Oxford Community Foundation for six years starting in 2003. He is now the treasurer of the Three Valley Conservation Trust in Oxford, Ohio. Moving from class agent to trustee, he hopes to be able to increase his contribution to the schools. He said, “My goals [as a trustee] are to support Taylor Stockdale in all endeavors, to grow the schools’ endowment, while maintaining steadfast adherence to the schools’ mission.”
