MR. JAMES LEON MIOTT 1949-1987
MR. JAMES LEON MIOTT 1949-1987
The untimely passing of James Leon Miott on August 16, 1987, marked the conclusion of nine years of unparalled services to Morris College as instructor in Music and Director of the Morris College Chorale. Mr. Miott was highly respected for his dedication to his work, his thorough, well prepared lessons, and his matchless thirst for music.
He passed on to the Morris College Family a legacy of a lifelong thirst for learning, and undaunted commitment to excellence, a sincere love for and appreciation of people — especially students, a deep willingness to share fully his talents with others, and a firm example of practical Christian living.
The College family members who were privileged to know him will ever appreciate the stoutness of his heart, the richness of his soul and his love for music and for mankind.
"Death is not sad ... its a time for elation,
A joyous transition ... the soul's emigration Into a place where the soul's safe and free.
To he with God through eternity.
Helen S. Rice
