Lt. Governor Aruna Miller Inducted into Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame


Indian American Lt. Governor of Maryland, Aruna Miller, has achieved a significant milestone by being inducted into the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame. Miller’s groundbreaking achievement marks her as the first woman of color and immigrant elected to statewide office in the state. Alongside Miller, four other distinguished women were honored with this prestigious recognition: US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Maryland House Speaker Adrienne A. Jones, Secretary of State Susan Lee, and Comptroller Brooke Lierman.

Expressing her gratitude, Miller stated, “I am grateful to stand among the remarkable women whose legacies inspire us to see more, do more, and be more. Every day, I work to uplift the people of Maryland and create a strong foundation for a future that our next generation of leaders can be proud of.”

In her role as Lt. Governor, Miller has actively engaged in matters relating to transportation, mental health, and STEM equity, aiming to foster a more inclusive and progressive society. Notably, she chairs Maryland’s first Council on Interfaith Outreach, which brings together faith leaders from diverse backgrounds to promote religious tolerance, bridge divides, combat hate, and enhance community services.

Originally from Andhra Pradesh, India, Miller immigrated to the United States with her family at the age of seven. Raised in a family of engineers, she pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the Missouri University of Science and Technology, laying the foundation for her remarkable journey of leadership and service.
