On February 20, 2011 Johnny Miller (center) received The Celtic Cross Award for his outstanding work in scouting and the church. From left, Wateree District Commissioner Jim Bradshaw, District Committee Member Art Graham, Miller, District Committee Member Walter Smith and Wateree District Chairman John Stephenson helped with the presentation.

Miller has been involved in scouting more than 30 years. He began his career in scouting as a member of the Boy Scout Troop 303, sponsored by Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church. Miller has served as an assistant scoutmaster, and scoutmaster of Troop 303. With his leadership and organizational skills, he increased the membership of the troop and put the troop on very sound footing.

He also served as the troop’s committee chairman.

Miller continues to be active in scouting by heading up camporees and participating in board of reviews for Troop 303.
Miller has been active in his community through his membership in the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce, serving as a board member and president.

Miller has served as chairman of the Camden Board of Zoning Appeals, president of the Rotary Club, Quaker Cemetery Board, and the Habitat Board. Miller has served most of his adult life toward the service of others.

The purpose of the Celtic Cross Award is for leaders of children in Christian education programs who have given countless hours to prepare and teach values.

The Celtic Cross was used in the Church of Scotland and has had special significance through the history of the Presbyterian Church. The bronze medallion has a yellow cross against a dark blue background. It hangs from a blue and green plaid ribbon.
