Miller is an eighth generation Texas farmer and serves now as the 12th Commissioner of the Texas Department of Agriculture. Since taking office, Miller has visited every continent on the globe to promote Texas agricultural products.

According to the club, one of his most significant accomplishments was his historic visit to China that led the way to opening the Chinese market to Texas beef, for the first time in decades.
