Green Mountain United Way is pleased to announce that Scott Milne, President of Milne Travel American Express, has agreed to serve as Chair of its 2015 – 2016 fundraising campaign.
Scott spent most of his early years on the family farm in Washington, VT and is no stranger to work having dabbled in several occupations, like farm laborer, construction worker, grocery store clerk, restaurant waiter, and then a field engineer for an electronics company on the west coast before joining Milne Travel. He knows the struggles that many Vermonters face and is sensitive to making our area one where people can become financially stable and live happy and healthy lives. Because of his vast experience and genuine care for Vermonters, Scott is the ideal choice for Campaign Chair.
Milne will be the guest speaker at the GMUW Campaign Kickoff breakfast on Sept. 16th where he will outline his vision for a successful campaign.
Marion Milne, Scott’s mother, was a staunch supporter of the United Way for many years as well as serving as Green Mountain United Way’s Campaign Chair in 1985 and 1999, and on its Board of Directors. Scott is aware of the “big shoes” he is stepping into with Marion Milne’s United Way legacy – and is hoping many folks will step up as a way of paying tribute to his mom.
