“Luke’s easygoing attitude, positive outlook and keen interest in improving the overall rehabilitation experience are all reasons he is more than deserving of this award for Excellence in Caring in the support staff category,” said Norene Cochran, health care administrator for Asbury Place Kingsport. “A key member of our therapy staff, Luke continually seeks ways to improve the quality of life for all residents of Asbury Place, not only in the health care setting, but also for our residential living population and the surrounding community.”

Cochran cited Miller’s role in organizing what is now an annual car show at Asbury Place as an example of bringing together Asbury Place and the community.

“In 2016, Luke worked with a few car club friends and the full support of Asbury Place to organize an on-campus barbecue and car show,” Cochran said. “Residents, staff, family, friends and community members join the festivities, which include food, spectacular cars, snow cones, fresh popcorn and door prizes. In two short years, this event has become quite the gathering and has brought our community and our facility closer together.”

Miller has worked at Asbury Place for 14 years. He lives in Gate City, Virginia, with his wife, Jennifer, and daughter, Lily.
