Union community rallies for parent and former employee

Publication Date

The sisters of Delta Delta Delta have created a fund drive to help former employee and Union parent Terry Miltner, who is awaiting a heart transplant at Massachusetts General Hospital. Miltner is the father of Michelle Miltner ’13.

He was diagnosed with congestive heart failure in 2007. While Miltner awaits the transplant, he will remain in the critical care unit in Boston, hours away from his home and family in Burnt Hills, N.Y. The money raised by Tri Delta will help defray the family’s expenses.

Miltner worked at Union for more than 20 years, serving in three different capacities in Facilities. “During that time, he worked diligently to obtain his Union College degree, and in his last position, he became the College’s first sustainability coordinator,” said Loren Rucinski, director of Facilities. “His career was cut short due to illness, and we wish him all the best and a speedy recovery.”
