Stillwater and the African American History
Join us for our first Business @Lunch of the year. As we celebrate Black History Month, we would like to know how we could help support our fellow black-owned businesses and be more of an inclusive community. We are excited to have Reverend Calvin W. Miller of Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church, as he shares African American History and how it pertains to Stillwater.
Reverend Miller was a scholarship football player at Oklahoma State University, as a Defensive Linemen. While he was a student athlete at Oklahoma State University during 1973 – 1974, he served as Associate Minister under the late Rev. Willard Dallas at Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church.
Rev. Miller has spent his life developing young men as football players at the following: Oklahoma State University, Tulsa University; University of Kentucky; University of Central Oklahoma; Southern Nazarene University and Langston University – where he currently serves as Assistant Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator.
Rev. Miller was called to pastor the Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Stillwater in March of 2001, where he continues to serve to this day. In 2018 he was awarded the Merv Johnson Integrity Award by the Oklahoma Coaches Association, Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame, and in November 2021, he was placed in the Oklahoma FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) Hall of Fame.
Business @Lunch combines building relationships and making connections with business education. For many years, members have selected this event as the most beneficial program the Chamber provides. Each month, the program features speakers and presenters who provide important information about the community, leadership training and other business-related tools.
