In 1969, Kenneth E. Miller entered Mississippi State University. He was a member of the first group of African-Americans to be admitted to MSU. He became the second African American to graduate from MSU’s Aerospace Engineering programme. As he modestly acknowledged, he is still considered to be a Black Pioneer at MSU.
The education that Ken received in science, technology, engineering and mathematics at MSU prepared him for his extraordinary career in military aviation. He retired as one of the highest ranking civilians in the Defense Department. Ken then became a globally recognised Defense and Aerospace Strategist and trusted advisor, it is in this capacity that he provided great support and advice to Hybrid Air Vehicles.
Ken’s intelligence, leadership skills, and quiet demeanor allowed him to work across the board to laser in on creative, and often ground-breaking solutions, to difficult and complex issues. He earned and enjoyed the deep respect and admiration of peers, colleagues, and leadership in both government and industry.
